so at michaels (a craftstore... i dunno if theyre everywhere or not) they have those cheap blank tshirts... but they dont come in the most appealing colors and they feel kinda thick and baggy. at nordstroms they have blank tshirts, only they come in a whole array of lovely colors and fit so comfortably... but those are 16 bucks each. my plan is to buy some of those cheap tshirts at michaels and use the vintage fade thing on them to make them comfy... and maybe i can make colors using dyes. like take a red shirt and add purple dye to make maroon... or get a green shirt and add blue dye for turqoise. has anyone done this before? has anyone ever used dyes before? ive tried using them and i never can get an even dye and the color never turns out nice. does anyone know of a great brand of dye i could get? thanks... ill love you if you help me ;]

i think i know what kind of tshirts you are talking about.  I was at Parisian last night and the plain tshirts, the kind you normally see "vintage" prints on, were only 7.99!!!!!!!  i've seen them at Lazarus-Macy's too in the juniors section.  Short sleeve, in pink, white, black, brown, aqua, orange, yellow, blue, etc.  Crewneck and Vneck.  Don't know the exact brand name, but probably exactly the same thing at Nordstrom's but cheaper.  And Lazarus and Parisian's often have coupons!
