I had been wanting to do a Stars & stripes dress since last summer. After searching the net, thrift stores, and Supermarkets I finnally found this crinkle cotton dress on sale at Old Navy and I had to get it.

Not a childrens dress but I couldn't find another model.


To achieve stripes I cut rubberbands in half, poked them though the dry gauze and tied them securely.


I then wetted the skirt of the dress in very hot water wrung it out and placed it in the dye bath for two days.


Post rinse



For the blue I purchased wood star cut outs from joanns and metal spring clips from home depot. I folded the dry bodice in half with the sides touching and clamped the stars down. The middle star is a bit flubbed, I put  half the fabric in the clamp and hoped for a more symetrical effect  Angry.
   Sorry for no pics of the blue they got deleted in a phone reboot .

Awesome!  I absolutely love it!

What dye did you use?  The colors are perfect.

I used Dylon for the red and the blue was a mixture of iDye and a little bit of Rit navy liquid.
