Polka Dot Dyed Dress DIY


We’re crazy for polka dots here at M&J, and if you haven’t noticed we’ve been dip dying a lot lately. We’ve combined our passion for polka dots and our dip dying skills to create this adorable dress.

Rit Dye



Lay your shirt out on a flat surface.

Dip the back of your pencil into your dye making sure it is heavily saturated.


HELPFUL HINT: The back of your pencil will be used like a paintbrush while the dye will be used like paint.


We opted to outline the dress with a polka dot pattern, but have fun with it!




Polka Dots


Polka dots have been popular for quite some time. The classic black and white pattern that is reminiscent of our childhood now appears in every color worldwide. The playful print evokes a joyful emotion in everyone. These spots have been shown on pop art, puppies, and even puccis. Here at M&J the dotted pattern is severely adored.
