Being a mom can certainly be a thankless job at times so you’ve gotta look for the silver-linings: Cozy snuggles with sleeping babies, getting to revisit Harry Potter together, and a BIG one for us is getting to twin with our little girls. I cannot explain why I get such a high from it, but when I see a Mommy and me set the elation I feel at the prospect of matching with my daughter helps to take the tiniest edge off the whining/tantrums.
You may have seen our Mommy and me ice dye dresses which we fell so head over heels for that we had to try again with a different tie dye method with these DIY Mommy & Me Tie Dye Rompers and Jumpsuits. This time, we found some darling white jumpsuits from Ivy City Co. (a wonderful boutique with tons of gorgeous Mommy and me dresses), and knew we had to give them a girly tie dye treatment. Plus, they are 100% cotton so we knew they would dye beautifully. We were super particular about the shade of pink we used because we wanted them to be perfect and are so happy with the result. Here is what you need to make your own:
In our new book, DIY Guide to Tie Dye Style, we walk you through tie dyeing all types of fabrics and teach you how to know what type of dye to use based on what’s on your tag, and this tutorial is just a taste of the types of projects you’ll find inside!
