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?

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!
