DIY Project: Tip Dye Shorts!

Wednesday, February 08, 2012

You can find me here:

I've seen for a long time those amazing shorts on sites like Tumblr, on some bloggers, and I've always wanted a pair, but as a great procrastinator, I've always postponed it. But I finally did them! I DIY the first one on Monday (it'll be in my next outfit post) and I did the second one tonight actually!!

J'ai vu ces shorts il ya pas mal de temps sur des sites comme Tumblr, aussi sur d'autres bloggeuses, et j'ai toujours voulu avoir une paire, mais grande procrastineuse que je suis, je l'ai toujours repousse. Mais je les ai enfin! J'ai fait le premier lundi (il sera dans mon prochain post) et j'ai fait le 2e ce soir!!

So let me introduce them to you :)

BEFORE

AFTER


As you can see, those were pants before. There were actually old pants I had for quite a bit, but I never wear them anymore so I thought it'll be great to DIY them!

1. For this one, I just made some cuts on the shorts and bleached the tip 
2. Let me tell you about this one: as you can see, the pants are black, so I thought I'll bleach the entire shorts to remove the black color before dying it (the result was totally awful!!!). I was actually afraid the shorts will have the stains from when I bleached it, but I actually love the result! I dyed the bottom purple and the top pink, then I added the studs :)

Hope you like them! Stay tuned, I have something interesting coming! :)

  2. damn, I'd never thought that jeans has such yellowish color (but it was easy to guess). And maybe it's not my style, but I love results!

  16. Ah d'accord, merci ! Et donc y a des colorants pour vêtements de différentes couleurs ou c'est toi qui obtient un résultat plus clair ou foncé en fonction du temps pendant lequel tu laisses le produit sur l'habit ? (Hope it makes sense :s)
