I saw this on Polyvore and thought it was different and unique.

DIY Galaxy Dress

Created by polyvore-editorial

This DIY from Stars for Streetlights (http://www.starsforstreetlights.com/) is inspired by Christopher Kane's wildly popular galaxy print dress. To create it, you'll need a black cotton dress, an empty spray bottle, fabric paint and bleach. Begin by laying the dress out on either a plastic sheet or outside and add the bleach to the spray bottle. Spray the bleach strategically on the dress to emulate a cosmic pattern. You can create darker and lighter sections by allowing some bleach to pool in the middle of large swaths. Let your dress dry and then run it through the washing machine and dry again. Next, take a few different colors of fabric spray (try purple, pink, or green) and lightly spray the edges of the bleached galaxy. Let the dress dry and wear!

 I agree with Yvonne,I can't really see the details since the image is small. But I think the bleach look i probably wouldn't wear.

Sorry, I didn't realize the image was so small! I'll try to resize and update.

I didn't realize the image size uploaded so small. I'll try resizing.
I don't normally go for the bleached looked either cause I think tie-dye, but this caught my attention.
