D I Y / White Trash

Photobucket

Photobucket


After being dipped in a bucket of bleach and getting a ripping treatment, my Levi's 501 made their third transformation. From full lenth jeans into shorts into this white, trashy, destroyed piece. It'll only become more beautiful after a couple of washes which will make the strings, rips and tears look a bit more natural. I used the same technique to destroy the denim as in this post.

I was thinking about bleaching my denim jacket, but I wasn't sure how white I can get it. How dark where your Levi's before bleaching?

Duck said...

So nice! I'm wearing an old pair of jeans shorts just now and thinking maybe I should bleach them... They are also a bit loose now - lost some weight - and wondering how I can shrink them!

Laura said...

Great job! Ripped denim is the better denim ;-)

Hey meid,

je kent me niet, maar ik zag dat ze op onderstaande site een foto van je gebruiken zonder te melden waar die vandaan komt. Erg onbeschoft als je het mij vraagt. Nja kijk maar of je er iets mee doet.
