[DIY] Acid Wash Jeans
It's been on my agenda to do this since I first saw it on The Fashion Guitar and then on Raspberry & Rouge and given it's a 4 day weekend for me this weekend, I thought this would be the ideal time.  I went out of my way in December to buy the jeans (from the markets for AU$2, ridiculously, they also fit me perfectly) to do it!
So here it is, step by step for those of you who haven't ever done it and want to, or want to but aren't game, or don't want to but are curious to see how it's done.
What you needJeans (that you want to experiment with)Rubber Bands2 litres of BleachWaterBucket
Step OneFold or twist each leg of the jeans separately and tie with rubber bands.I did mine in sections with no real consistency, I don't want it to look perfect.
Once you get to the hip area just get creative and bunch up that area and tie with the rubber bands.
Step TwoFill up a bucket water and bleach 2:1 or 3:1 depends how intense you want it to be.
Step ThreePut first half of the jean in for 45mins and second half in for 45 mins.(see how it looks then & you might need to put the bits in that need more in for 20mins each, that's what I did!)
Step FourAfter unravelling the jeans, wash them without bleach.
Et Voilà!
What do you think of my success?  Tell me cause I would love to hear your feedback!
I will style it in on of my future outfit posts... look out!
Big Love,LSB
PS: As you can see I had some handsome helpers with me the whole time!PSS: A big thank you to the ladies from 'The Fashion Guitar' and 'Raspberry & Rouge' for the inspiration!!!!
