12. VOILA!!! Beautiful ombre style denim cut offs that are obviously waaaaayyy better than the ones popping up on the highstreet because they are fabulous DIY.
I've also ordered some studs off ebay to customise these further, or perhaps the next pair!
Good To Know
- Mine were obviously on white, so the colour came out really well. You can buy pre-lightener to use first, but the colour of the original fabric will affect the final result. Normal colour rules apply too-red dye on blue fabrics will have a more purpley result and a more orangey result on yellow fabrics. Common sense really!
- You need to use salt, just normal household salt (although you can get the Dylon salt, which is 500g-the exact amount you need with the machine wash box) to help the dye be absorbed into the fabric properly.
- Only the actual denim will get dyed, not usually the thread on the seams, pockets etc. I personally think this is a much nicer effect, but something to keep in mind!
