Do you have a piece of clothing or two that you love and have thought about throwing out, but you can't because you love it too much? This denim dress is a favorite and is past its prime. It's faded a lot and has some stains on it. I wanted to give it a new look in hopes that it can have some more life.
I decided to shibori dye it with indigo of course! I chose the nail burrito technique because it's a vertical stripe and I think it's very flattering. Check out the photos and the video for the step by step information.
