Painted Threads (http://paintedthreadsprojects.blogspot.com/2012/05/diy-ombre-skirt.html) has a super easy DIY Ombre Skirt tutorial. I just got this Christopher & Banks skirt out of the washing machine. I've had it for a while. My mom actually got it for me. I like it but it's a little bit on the bland side. I think it's because it's so dark and I usually don't wear that dark of denim.

I've bleached the holy hell out of the bottom part of this skirt and can't get it as white as I would like but it was looking pretty good when I rinsed it and threw it into the washer.


I am going to let it air dry tonight and run it through the dryer in the morning with a dryer sheet. It still really smells like bleach, even after being washed. Originally. I thought I hadn't been able to get the bottom as stark white as I would have liked, but it surprised me. And even though I rinsed the skirt out before washing it, that middle section came out lighter than I wanted, but still...I love how this turned out!!!!! My laundry room was a little dark tonight, so the top part is really not that dark. The before picture above it actually truer to life.
