Dip Dyed Boyfriend Shorts

I wasn't really going to post this DIY since it's been done sooo many times online, but ever since I made it a few weeks back its been my fav summer staple. I just love it, so I had to show you anyways.

A few weeks back I saw a bag of old clothes in the hallway (aka laundry..?), I raked through it looking for DIY victims (clearly). Holly YAY a pair of my brothers (really) old jeans fit me.
It's summer so I wanted shorts and boyfriend shorts rock.

I measured the pants on me to find a good length. Then I laid the pants down "double" so I could measure  the leg and cut them the same length. Then I mixed about 2 cups of chlorine with a few litres of luke warm water in a bucket. I dunked the jeans (what was left of them anyway) in the bucket and left them over night. I am sure some jeans will bleach faster, but these took some time. I washed them in the washer, rolled up the hem and tata, they are ready to wear! I was actually planning to "fray" them a little with sand paper, but I love them too much to do anything that could possibly harm them, haha!

Right: DIY Havaianas from this post and J.Crew top.
