I’ve been a fan of these galaxy prints from Christopher Kane for ages, so I took it upon myself to try and recreate the galaxy effect. It ended up being so easy, and I think it turned out to be pretty rad.

What you’ll need:
* Black Cotton Tee (or try a skirt or dress)
* Spray Bottle
* Bleach solution (4 parts water, 1 part bleach)
* Blow Dryer (optional)

Step 1:
In a well ventilated, and able to get messy area, lay tee out flat. Spray with bleach solution in a random “galaxy-like” pattern.

Step 2:
Scrunch tee and repeat spray. This will help to make the pattern look more organic.

Step 3:
Dry. I used my blow dryer to accelerate the bleach. You could also toss tee in the dryer, or lay the tee out in the sun.

Step 4:
Run your tee though the wash with cool water. Or rinse with cool water by hand.

Step 5:
TA-DA! Your done! Wear your new rad galaxy t-shirt.
