Tie Dye Pants

Remember when I dyed my trench coat┬átropical green? Well, I also managed to sneak a little tie dye project in… You see these very plain pants that are no longer at their bright white best and might otherwise be consigned to pant heaven?

After simply applying a few, carefully-placed and tightly-wrapped elastic bands:

And popping in the washing machine with the Dylon dye and salt on a 40 degree wash, you end up here…

…and finally after removing the elastic bands you end up here in 1960s-pants heaven!

PS After the success of the trench coat and these pants I can’t stop looking around for more things to dye… watch out wardrobe!
