This past weekend I thrifted an awesome shirt with an adorable robot on the front. The only problem is, the shirt is a horrific saffron color that I just can't wear. The shirt is a good size for me, and is comfortable 100% cotton that's been softened with wear, so I don't want to just cut the image off the front and apply it to a different garment.
So I had an idea. I'm thinking about busting out a candle and putting a layer of wax over the design, front and back, and then gently bleaching and dyeing the shirt in a dye bath on the stove (batik, basically).
I've never done this, though. Have any of you? Any advice is welcome!Cross-posted to sew_hip
