Our DIY Corner: Learn How To Make These Two Tone OMBRE TULLE SKIRTS!
This month we were so excited to have our DIY featured in Rock n Roll Bride Magazine, if you haven’t got yourself a copy of this magazine then we recommend you hurry up and get your mitts on one! It truly is one epic mag packed full of wedding awesome!! If you missed your tutorial for these ombre tulle skirts then fret not lovelies because we’re going to be sharing it with you today…
Tulle skirts are one of our favourite, most feminine items of clothing to wear. We absolutely adore how cute they look with all those layers of tulle falling pretty! This tutorial would be awesome for any event but deep deep down in our DIY hearts we’d love to see a bride rocking one of these two tone ombre skirts on their wedding day!
You will need:
A white tulle skirt // Fabric dye (we used dylon) in the colours you chose // Dye salt // A bucket // Warm water //
Following your dye instructions prepare your dye, salt and warm water as instructed.
Next, submerge the bottom half of your tulle skirt into the dye and make sure all of the layers of tulle are dipped in. Our dye instructions said to leave it for 15 minutes then give the water and fabric a stir then leave it for a further 45 minutes so that’s what we did! We then pulled the skirt out and left it to dry until the fabric was damp but not fully dry.
Next, you need to do exactly the same thing with your other chosen colour but placing the other half of the skirt in the dye. Once you’ve completed your dye time carefully pull the skirt out (making sure no dye drips down onto the other colour) and hang it up to fully dry.
Note: You may want to run your skirt through a cold wash once it’s dry depending on your dye instructions.
