D.I.Y Proenza Schouler

Hey ladies-

When I first seen the Spring/Summer 2010 Proenza Schouler show I was amazed.  The tomboyish/girlie pieces and the modern day tie dye is SICK!

When I came across WhoWhatWear daily's article on how to D.I.Y (Do It Yourself) I was like wow- I have to do this and put you guys on....

I thought this was amazing becuase to bless your skin with the beautiful PS diggs will run you an equivalent price tag of your rent... NO BUENO!!!  You do not have to pay alot to look fabulous! 
Check out a step by step guide to creating your very own Proenza Schouler inspired tie dye top!!!


-Rubber Gloves
- Tulip Tie Dye ($5) in Black, Blue, and Yellow
-American Apparel Sheer Jersey Long Sleeve Tee ($26)

1. Lay the shirt down on a flat surface. Insert a piece of cardboard in between the layers, so the dye does not bleed through from the front to the back!
2. Spray sides of the shirt with the Yellow fashion dye creating two outer panels of color.
3. Spray the middle section of the shirt with the darker contrasting color (in this case, the Blue fashion dye). It's ok if the color overlaps a little bit we think the bleeding looks cool!
4. Let it dry flat (for approximately thirty minutes; it's ok if it's a bit damp, as it will help the color bleed) and repeat first three steps on the backside of the shirt.
5. Once it has dried, gather the shirt in very thin vertical sections, grabbing from the neck and the bottom of the shirt (to create an accordion effect!)
6. Finally, make thin horizontal lines with the Black fashion dye (with tip applicator) across the gathered accordion surface using the tip of your tie dye bottle nozzle. Repeat on the sleeves.
7. Again, our master crafter recommends you wait for the shirt to dry for three days before washing, according to the directions on the tag. For peace of mind, wash it in like colors or all by itself first!

Witht he spring upon us... This is something I'm definitely trying- especially with different colors as well....

What do you think?  Are oyu gonna D.I.Y ????
