Denim Dress Upcycle Shibori Tutorial

Do you have a piece of clothing or two that you love and have thought about throwing out, but you can't because you love it too much?  This denim dress is a favorite and is past its prime.  It's faded a lot and has some stains on it.  I wanted to give it a new look in hopes that it can have some more life. 

I decided to shibori dye it with indigo of course!  I chose the nail burrito technique because it's a vertical stripe and I think it's very flattering.  Check out the photos and the video for the step by step information.
