Ombre is alllllll the rage. People have gone ombre cray cray.
So I thought I’d add to that a little.
You know those shorts that you have and somehow you got a stain on them that won’t come out?
Yes, your most favorite white shorts. Go get them.
It’s time to make them your most favorite shorts again.
The stain doesn’t show up too much here, but seriously if one more person tried to ‘wipe the dirt’ off my hiney I was going to have to call the police.
These shorts needed a second life. After all, they fit. That’s the most important feature of an item of clothing, amiright?
I purchased some Rit dye at JoAnn’s. I think it was $5.99 and I used a coupon.
Then it’s easy breezy from there.
Just put on your bifocals and read the (2pt font size) directions on the side of the bottle.
I decided to hang them with a skirt hanger.
This way, they could be dipped in the dye water very slowly to get the ombre effect.
Start with the hem and slowly let more of the shorts go into the dye until the entire piece of clothing was submerged.
If you want to keep part of it white, don’t totally submerge it.
Once they look the way you want them to (or your arms get tired) you can wash and dry them.
Mr. Creativity had to be my photographer.
The neighbors were having an outside party.
It was quite embarrassing.
Now, don’t go putting away your paint and sandpaper…this is not turning into a fashion blog.
I feel much more comfy in my painting clothes than posing in front of a camera (with neighbors watching).
