Is your white T-shirt no longer brilliant white, but perfectly in style? Is your white blouse getting on a bit, but you can’t bear to part with it? And would that top still look pretty for layering? Upcycling is the magic word! And it’s right on trend, because more and more people are giving old favourites a new look.

    We’ve used simplicol Fabric Dye intensive in Celestial Blue, Pastel Green, Orchid Purple, and Magnolia Pink for the blouses, T-shirts, and tops in this guide. Simply use the dyes in the washing machine.

    Our tip: To get a very delicate shade, simply dye more fabric than the amount stated for the full shade.
