I recently fell in love with a somewhat untraditional form of bleaching/acid wash after watching Karen Walker's Fall 2008 fashion show. I was wondering if anyone has ideas about how I could make something similar. I am most interested in DIYing the high waisted jeans rather than the red velvet skirt. I know either would make a great fashion statement and I would be the only one wearing either at my school Smiley

Here's what I'm talking about:

So, its really late and I'm tired and I just noticed that I totally spaced out and posted this in the wrong forum. Anyway I could get it moved to the "Clothing: Discussion and Questions" forum?

i have always loved the acid wash look that was popular before my time
but these are especially cool, i've never seen anything like that!

Looks like crumpling up something and dipping it in either dye or bleach. Or crumple up bleach drenched paper and lay it on the fabric for a short while. No, that last one sounds a bit iffy. Try to get thick bleach i'd say so it won't leak trough and suck up in the fabric quite as fast leaving nice sharp edges.
good luck!
