Seeing as I’m planning on starting a t-shirt line, and I’ve also wanted to try this out for a while now, I thought I’d have a go at making a Galaxy Tank Top. Credit for this brilliant idea goes to Rhiannon Ashlee (FashionRocksMySocks)!

1. CUT YOUR SHIRT (optional)

IMG_1486

I was working on an old shirt, and I didn’t like the sleeves, so I decided to turn it into a tank top by cutting around 1-2cm away from the hem, using the hem’s line as a guide.

2. REPEAT ON THE OTHER SIDE

IMG_1488

When you fold the shirt over, make sure the hem is in line, or the shirt wont be even.

3. PUT ON YOUR GLOVES

IMG_1489

Bleach can burn your skin, so this step is highly recommended.

4. START SPRAYING

IMG_1490

You can use a spray bottle, a paint brush, sponges, anything your heart desires. Just so long as you don’t just pour it all onto the shirt in one huge blob.

5. MAKE PATTERNS ON BOTH SIDES

Don’t worry if it doesn’t show up straight away, the bleach can take quite a while to work properly.

6. WAIT 20-30 MINUTES

I had a calippo ice lolly while I was waiting for the bleach to work it’s magic.

7. RINSE AND REPEAT

IMG_1498

Make sure you wash all of the bleach out of your shirt. Repeating steps 4 and 5 are optional, and can make the shirt look more interesting and detailed.

8. LEAVE THE SHIRT TO DRY

IMG_1500

Make sure you let it dry thoroughly.

9. AFTERCARE

IMG_1501

(I noticed this blotch when the shirt was drying, and it looks scarily like a face.)

Make sure you wash your shirt once more before you wear it, but in the washing machine this time. I do not recommend washing it along with other clothes, even if you’ve worn it a few times. It may smell like bleach for a while, but that smell should fade after a few washes.

Seeing as it’s Spring, I really wanted to do the I ♡ Spring Tag, but I knew I wouldn’t really be able to answer all of the tag questions, and I wanted to talk to you briefly about my plans to start a t-shirt line. So I decided to mash them together into one, rather than struggle to finish separately. Credit for the Spring Tag goes to Ingrid (MissGlamorazzi).

T-SHIRT LINE?

For a while now, I’ve been considering making a t-shirt line, but I wasn’t sure if anyone would be interested in it. I’m not giving too many details away at the moment, because I’m not sure if I’ll actually start a t-shirt line yet or not. I have some plans for what sort of shirts I would sell, but I wanted some further ideas from you. Feel free to leave any ideas here, or on my twitter for what I should do. Thank you!
