so my jeans are about 2 years old.. and the bottoms are all ripped up, the certain pair pictured here had bleach on the side of 1 of the legs from cleaning the bathroom and the other had a patched hole (thanks to a certain friend dragging me on a bike ride :) so needless to say i was in serious need of new ones.
thanks to the lovely target (yay for shopping ;) i got 2 new pairs!! so now i get to destroy my other two!
I've seen this DIY before all over youtube, but I never thought I would do it. My inspiration for this DIY didn't come from pinterest actually, but more from this video. I did not do everything that was in the video, but hey if its your thing go right ahead!
so for this pair of awesome shorts you will need...
- a pair of old jeans
after that i got the bleach into a spray bottle.
I took the jeans outside and sprayed the jeans a whole lot on the bottom, and then lighter towards the top to get a ombre effect going on. After I sprayed the jeans on the bottom I let it sit and lighten a bit, and when I notice that it wasn't the color I wanted I sprayed more. I did that about twice.
After the jeans had lightened to what I thought I wanted I brought them inside and rinsed them off in the sink. I then tossed them in the washer for the quickest washing cycle and then into the dryer after.
and TADA!!! my new favorite pair of jeans :)
until the next post... :)
