Your best bet is go to Jo Anne or your local craft store. They’ll know the best fabric dye to use for your shirt’s material.

go to a craft store, or somewhere like walmart, and buy a box of RIT dye.
instructions are included on the inner box :)
you’ll need a bucket or tub, salt, gloves, and hot water as well.

If you use a fixative (what fixative you’ll need depends on the dye…you may need to add one, like salt, or it may already be mixed into the dye) the dye will be colour-fast, i.e. it won’t bleed out of the shirt when you wash it.

For best results, the shirt should be a natural fibre (cotton, linen, silk etc). The more synthetic fibres there are in it (viscose, polyester etc) the harder it will be for the fabric to take the dye. 100% synthetic items are pretty much impossible to dye successfully at home, but natural fabrics are easy.

RIT dye. you may have to add salt or detergent, but it’ll tell you on the directions.
