Last month, I transformed a white t-shirt using some techniques I learned in my Textile Design class. The class was interesting, but I wished it was longer... it only was for four weeks! But I did get to try my hands on tie-dying (it's making a comeback), silk screening, and sublimination. You might have seen a lot of sublimination tops these past couple of years. They look like this, where an image printed on the fabric is broken up with folds, creating these white lines. If you have a subliminated top, it is most likely made out of polyester.
Since I picked a 100% cotton tee, I decided to dye it "Bahama Blue" and silk screen an image I exacto-knifed out of contact paper. Here's the end result:
Amazing how this started out as a regular plain white t-shirt!
September Daze. A play on my birth month and the word "days." To me September represents a time of change, when summer and autumn meet - two of my favorite seasons yet they are very different. I am very much a socal girl, but I love to dress up! I consider fashion as wearable art and I truly believe what you wear can transform you, regardless of the label. I don't have one particular style or follow any trends I just hope to create beautiful, well-made clothing.
