bleaching denim.

These old cut offs of mine that I wasn’t wearing much will soon become some amazing hand dyed watermelon shorts. Once I saw someone do this, I had to jump at the idea. With Bonnaroo Music Festival next weekend, it seemed like the perfect time to reinvent some old items in my wardrobe.

So watermelon shorts these will be. Soaked the denim shorts (which were pretty dark) in two inches of bleach for a couple of hours. This is what they looked like when I rinsed them. Once they finally dried, they were basically white, which is what I was looking for before the dyeing process. This is my first attempt at bleaching denim and it was a huge success.

Stay tuned for final snaps of my shorts!
