I have seen a few blog posts recently which have showcased a pair DIY dyed shorts that are three different colors all fading into each other. I decided that this was such a simple and fun DIY and after I found some white pants and different coloured dye I set to work.
What you need:
White shorts, capris/pants
First start by cutting you shorts, pants or capris into the length you want. I used a cheap pair of white pants that I found at a local thrift store.
After you get them to the length you want, soak the shorts thoroughly in water. Fill your spray bottles up with water and pour the dye into the spray bottles.
With the dye I bought I only used about 1/4 of the the package in the spray bottle so the dye wasn't too dark.
I first started with the yellow and spray about 3 inches from the top down.
I then did the pink,
And finished with the blue. I decided I wanted my shorts to look a bit faded so I only left the dye on for about 15 minutes and then put them through the washer (by themselves!) and then the dryer.
I loved the way these shorts turned out. It was so much fun to use the spray bottles to dye the shorts and I cannot wait to try again. There are so many different colors and so many possibilities and different things you can do with a white short.
