I'm really glad I found something to do with these salmon colored jeans. They were a little much.


It's a little sketchy to put bleach in a shot glass...don't do this around anyone who loves tequila. I can't stress enough how important it is to do this DIY outside. I did mine in my studio which is set up with great ventilation because of all the metal sanding and soldering I do, but by the end I wished I had done it outside. Don't huff bleach fumes for fashion. It's not worth it!


This couldn't be easier, just paint alternating squiggly chevrons on the shorts with the bleach. I tried to keep it as close to the original design as possible but mine bled a little more than I wanted it to.


Here's a look inside.


Let the bleach dry completely, then wash.
