I don't know why it took me so long to do this but I am SOOO happy with the result!!!

I've had these white pants forever! But never wore them because of the visible panty problem. I bought several pairs but nothing quite worked and I was always self conscience that people could see my underwear. Well a couple weeks ago it just hit me, Why don't I dye them! I've always wanted grey pants so I bought black rit dye after reading some reviews that dyeing white turned out dark grey hoping that's what would happen. I was SOOO ecstatic when that's exactly what happened! I LOVE LOVE LOVE them now! And was happily surprised that the buttons dyed too Smiley Yay!

Before:


After Cheesy


So it's not a major craft or anything but this was my first experience dyeing anything and I'm SUPER happy with the outcome!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Nice! I like how the stitching stayed lighter.
