SO as the twitter pals know, I’ve been working on making some COOL PANTS these last few weeks, and now, they’re finally done!
Story is: Forever 21 was having a buy-one-get-one-free sale last time I headed down and so I grabbed two pairs of pants, one in a nice teal and another in this hellish grandma-pants periwinkle (it was a nice color on it’s own, don’t get me wrong, but it happens to be a very, very unflattering choice to put on clothes). Since I got the hideous blue ones for free, I though to myself, how could I make this wearable? I had been wanting to try my hand at fabric dyeing for a while and I had seen a few diy space print tutorials going around, so I figured why not. You can’t really fuck up some blobs of color anyway (which is actually wrong. you can fuck up galaxy print, just google “galaxy print diy” and trust me, you’ll find them).
After plenty of trials, pairs of rubber gloves, and gallons of dye, here’s the result! I’m pretty pleased with how they turned out, even down to the little details! Some of the stars glow in the dark and the seams stayed blue (the black dye didn’t stick to the thread, a happy accident).
I was hoping to document the steps I took, but after things started getting messy I just said fuck it, sorry.
