One of our awesome followers, Denise Heredia, takes you step-by-step through the making of her lovely ombre studded shorts. Thanks Denise!
"I have decided to edit my own pair of shorts in a very summery way haha lol! Going out of the stereotypical kind of shorts which are white, black or colored, I’ve decided to create ombre shorts! Ombre is the gradient effect that’s seen in fashion shows and are super in trend right now! From Abbey Lee Kershaw’s hair dip dyes to Topshop collections, I’m loving it! (aren’t you?) But, since I’m a fan of Tumblr but I don’t have my own account, I always see these kinds of shorts and tried to copy them! The brand is Runwaydreamz and they sell amazing shorts with studs and goes with the whole Coachella, I’m-too-cool look! Here they are and below are steps on how to make your own! Hope you try it! It’s super fun!
"Here’s the finished product that I’m soooo happy to have made.
That’s me btw! Know how excited I am? I’ll wear them today! HAHA!
"Runwaydreamz that cost about $150-200! No wayyy but they’re so pretty!
"My latest purchase. So happy I got this one @ Rockell PowerMac that it became my inspiration for this Do-It-Yourself project!
Pink Ombre Belkin iPhone 4 case
"Materials needed! From left to right: White shorts (Cotton On), Venus Dye in Pink, Studs from Carolina’s, and a knife to insert the studs!
(From left to right)
1.) Boil hot water and add the dye.
2.) Dip the tip of the shorts in the colored water.
3.) Use anything (in my case, a spoon) to scoop the colored water half-way up the shorts.
4.) Then create a darker mixture by adding more dye and dip JUST the tip of the shorts
(From left to right)
1.) Dry the shorts (Woke up going straight down to see if it’s dry since I dyed it at night).
2.) Prepare the knife and studs.
3.) One by one, push the studs onto the shorts and use the knife (or your hands which I did but it HURT!) to push the metals down to secure the studs.
4.) Done with the area of the pocket!
"This project was truly a great unexpected expectation! Try these out! They’re perfect for the summer and it’ll go with anything (trust me, I’ve mix and matched them with different tops already)! So, instead of getting those super
over-priced Runwayydreammzz, make these! They’re super easy and all in all it cost me less than a thousand Pesos!
Happy D-I-Y-ing! Tell me about what you did in my Twitter! Have fun! :)
