Jailhouse Rock

I love wearing leggings with a long shirt. It’s so comfortable, but still cute and stylish. I had bought a long striped shirt at Wal-Mart a couple months ago and I loved wearing it.
(ahhh, no head!)
Except the black and white stripes made me feel a little like this guy:

What’s a girl to do when one of her favorite shirts makes her feel like a monopoly criminal? Dye it of course!

I filled my sink about half full with hot water and added half a bottle of Rit Dye in Royal Blue. I wet the shirt thoroughly before adding it to the dye bath. I stirred constantly with a wooden spoon for about 15 minutes. The bottle suggested longer, but I thought it looked dark enough after 15 minutes.

I rinsed the shirt with cold water until all the dye was out and the water ran clear.

Lastly, I threw my shirt in the washer per the bottle’s directions.

I pulled my shirt out of the dryer and (mentally) squealed with delight!

No more prison break!

If you have any shirts that make you feel like a prisoner (or just need an update), try dyeing them. It really is a cheap and easy change. Now I want to dye everything!


  1. wow! I love the blue color. Nice job.

  2. that came out great! I've always been afraid to dye clothing.
