Custom Pink Shorts



This is the before and after shot of my shorts. When I bought them I was a little surprised to see they were fluorescent rather than the baby pink shade i wanted (Baby pink is the colour of the Isabel Marant’s shorts that I would kill for).


So the customising began, first i put them in a pan of boiling water with a glow white sachet, some washing powder and left them to boil for 20mins.


Next I left them for an hour in a mixture of bleach and water.


In this photo they are still wet and I wasnt sure if my efforts had paid off.


Finally dried the colour change is clear to see J it was a bit of a fluke but it worked out in the end, i still havent decided if i should cut them or just carry on wearing them turned over at the bottom ??! What do you think ?
