DIY bleached jean tank

I have been seeing these bleached, almost ombre tanks/shirts popping up everywhere so I decided to take a stab at it.  It turned out better than I had thought it would and it was a fun project that kept me busy last weekend.

What you need: Bleach, a bucket, and a tank (this one I got at a thrift store for $4)

You have to allow the shirt to sit in the bleach for awhile. Around 30 mins later I came back to take it out. 

And Voila…A new and improved shirt is born!!!

Shorts-Eight 14, Shirt-Thrifted, Sunnies-D&G, Necklace-Kris Nations, Bracelets- Forever 21/Nordstrom Anniversary sale, Shoes-Steve Madden

This tank is perfect for summer!!! I have already worn it a few times and only had it a week.  Have you tried any DIY projects? I am interested to try more!!!! Have a fabulous weekend my lovelies!!!

    • Thx Nic :) you can totally do it too! it is a lot easier than you think. Sometimes I look at other bloggers DIY projects and I’m like “there’s no way I could do that!” start with easy ones that involve cutting, bleaching and dyeing!

  5. So cute!! Looks great with your hair :)
