There was this beautiful summery, silk, blue to orange ombre shirt I saw at the mall. Instead of paying $70 for it, I picked up a $12 cotton dress from H&M, and a couple packets of Rit dye from the fabric store for $2 each. For this DIY project I basically followed Rit’s ombré instructions that you can read on their website. Make sure you use a garment made of cotton or other natural fibers. Synthetics, like polyester, won’t hold the dye!
