DIY dip dye shorts

This DIY was inspired by the lovely Kim - check out this post for her little tutorial.

I bought some dye on ebay - I went for powder pink and burlesque red. I liked the look of these colours on their own and thought they could look good paired together.

I dyed some white denim shorts which I've had for a while, figured they would be good to use for my first try! They're a bit big for me now, but a belt solves that issue.


I was a bit unsure at first, but they're growing on me! I decided to add some little gold studs on one of the pockets too. I have some silver studs too and I recently bought a pair of jeans for £5 which I turned into shorts, so I think I will stud those as well.

I've since bought some more packs of dye, to try a different colour combination. I really enjoyed making these!
