I'm a girl who likes her tie dye.
I have several shirts, mostly Grateful Dead that are tie dyed.
When I was picking out the tuxes for our wedding, I so very bady wanted to have tie-dyed bow ties and cummerbands. But the wedding planner talked me out of it. I went with plain boring black instead.
I tried tie-dyeing one time and failed miserably. The colors were a mish-mash and faded too quickly.
There is a definite art tie-dying.
Now I leave it up to the professionals like my friend Mike The Hippie.
