DIY: Christopher Kane Inspired Galaxy Tee

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.

    I use bleach to tie dye colored t-shirts. I love seeing what colors I can pull! I never thought to use a spray bottle. Awesome idea!

    I think I must have known black cotton turns an orangey-red, from accidentally splashing bleach on my laundry!

    I love this idea, very creative. I often do thinks like that, designing shirts and jewelry.
    For me fashion is a creative way to express your personality and with designing your own items it totally succeeds.
    Pretty great blog.

    this blog is so awesome, full of ideas and inspiration ! it just became one of my favourites :—)


    I absolutely adore this! I’ve been looking for galaxy print garments of clothing in many high street stores but I haven’t yet found an item that I like. However, this is exquisite! I just have one concern about how to wash this top – it would have to be hand washed, right? As much as I love the galaxy theme, I wouldn’t like my work clothes to exhibit the same print!

  18. Amanda

    Yes, I would recommend washing it by hand with cold water, or running it through the wash alone.
