This is by far one of my favorite DIYs, altering a basic T-Shirt into a cute ruffle top, but this time I added a twist by making it into a girls summer dress. To make it even better I’ve added summer’s perfect design TIE DYE!

I love altering t-shirts into something completely different. They’re perfect to work with because you already have a basic garment shape to start with, plus they’re super inexpensive and dye really well!
I used the Tulip One Step Tie Dye Kit in Moody Blues for this project. I love the cool blues and greens for summer!
I have to admit that I’m trying to get more adventurous with my tie dye. This time I made the big spiral and it was way easier than I thought. I’ve dyed to so many garments, I don’t know why tie dye intimidates me. I think I’ll make this my goal for summer to conquer tie dye!
I was originally going to make this into a top for me, but when I was making it my daughter kept saying she wanted one just like it. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that it was the perfect length for a little girls dress. If you want to see how to easily make this into a ruffle tube top for you click here.
Unfortunately the day we decided to photograph this the weather took a dip, so I had to buy her with Jamba Juice and something from Daiso (the Japanese dollar store, her favorite store) to get her to model in flip flops and no sleeves.
