Tie-Dyed Golf Outfits

August 27 2020

Meet Mr and Mrs Kim, a charismatic duo who has stolen our hearts. First-generation immigrants, small business owners, grandparents and avid golfers. These are just a few titles they’re proud to wear — along with this 🔥 tie-dye outfit. After working 6 days a week for 10+ years, the pandemic has given them a reason to slow down. They’ve spent their newfound free time tie-dyeing, golfing, and celebrating 38 years of marriage. Their secret to a successful partnership? Learning to accept the uncontrollable —both in golf and life.

Instructions

The golf clothes that Mr and Mrs. Kim love are made from 100% polyester, so Rit DyeMore for Synthetics was used! However, if the clothes contain less than 40% polyester, then you can use Rit All-Purpose Dye, following this tutorial.

  1. Prewash garment in warm, soapy water. This helps to remove any finishes that may interfere with dye absorption.
  2. Leave the fabric damp and lay it out on a flat surface.
  3. For this project, we did the scrunch technique. For instructions on how to do other techniques, check out our complete tie-dye for synthetics tutorial here.
  4. Scrunch the fabric together to form a flat ball
  5. Secure with rubber bands. The more tightly you secure the scrunch, the more white space you will see in the final result.
  6. Now it is time to create your dyebath.
  7. Fill a stainless steel pot with three gallons of hot water.
  8. Cover pot and heat water on stove top to just below boiling (or 180 F°).
  9. Wearing gloves, add 1/2 bottle of well-shaken dye.
  10. Mix well.
  11. Add garment to dyebath.
  12. Stir occasionally for 5 to 30 minutes. Allow more time if dyeing 100% polyester. The longer the fabric is in the dye bath, the darker the color will be. Please note that fabric will look darker when wet and will dry lighter.
  13. When desired color is achieved, remove wrapped fabric from the dyebath. Squeeze out excess dye.
  14. Rinse in warm water and then gradually cool water until rinse water begins to run clear.
  15. Carefully remove rubber bands with a scissors and unfold the fabric.
  16. Wash in warm water with a mild detergent, rinse and dry.
