DIY: Proenza Schouler Inspired Tie-Dye

How many of you loved Proenza Schouler's Spring 2010 collection like I did? My favorite piece? The tie-dye long-sleeved top! It also seemed to be a lot of other people's favorite as well, as it vanished from online store after online store. I had given up all hope of finding one until I came across a DIY version from P.S. I Made This.  Why hadn't I thought of this sooner?! If you haven't already tried this DIY (I'm a little late at finding it), I definitely recommend you do- it was affordable, the end result is amazing, & it kills time on a rainy afternoon...

The Original Design

1. Supplies: Plain white tee (mine's from H&M kids), Tulip spray dye, gloves, & instructions :)
2. I sprayed yellow panels along the sides & blue on the inside/outside of the arms on both sides of the shirt.
3. I folded the shirt like an accordion (length wise, not shown) & created stripes with the black dye on both sides.
4. The dye requires 72 hours to dry before the shirt can be washed.
