I just love this new Ombre Romper that I made for my little girl! The “Ombre” look or the “graduated color” look is one of my favorite ways to tie dye.
I was recently given the Tulip One-Step Tie Dye Kit and I just love it! It came with 5 different colors of dye inside of bottles that you just mix with water, gloves, rubber bands and refills of all the colors. I also received a plastic protective table cover from Tulip which was really helpful to have. When I opened up my kit I knew that I wanted to make this romper and I am so glad that I did.
What you will need to make your own:
A plain white romper or white shirt and white shorts (mine were found at Walmart) making the shirt and shorts into a romper will require some sewing.
Ribbon in coordinating color with the dye for straps and matching thread for sewing
Small Spray Bottle
Protective Plastic for your surface and paper towels
Since I couldn’t find a plain white romper I needed to sew my own. I decided that by getting a little shirt and shorts and sewing them together would be the best route… so I went to Walmart to see if they had what I was looking for. They sure did! I found a plain white top and shorts set at Walmart in the Garanimals brand.
Wash your romper one time in the washing machine and do not dry. This technique calls for the fabric to be wet before dying. To make the Ombre look for the romper I used the Tulip One Step Tie Dye Kit. It came with 5 bottles of different dye colors and refills. I chose the teal color for the romper. I just filled the bottle to the line with water and then mixed it up.
