DIY: Studded distressed shorts [Update]
Remember a week ago I decided to become a sort of a seamstress? Yes, I took on a DIY project to create distressed, studded denim shorts.
The studding and distressing part went very well. However, when it came to bleaching... well, something went totally wrong! The shorts I made [Click here to see post] was great until I bleached it. Don't know what went wrong but perhaps I bleached it too long. Anyhow, after I put it through the wash, the shorts came out looking like a g-string. I kid you not. Tempted to make it the first Levis 501 denim thong and sell it on e-bay.
So, I went fourth and created a new distressed shorts [above]. This time, instead of soaking it in bleach, I drizzled it with bleach and then brushed it off with a tooth brush [paint brush works well too]. This time, it came out much nicer.
