So, I have these jeans. I bought them in…2005? And they are still the comfiest jeans I own. The problem is, they are really faded. So pale that I don’t feel like they’re really up to public wearing. But I couldn’t pull the plug on them. RIT Dye to the rescue! I used denim blue, which seemed highly appropriate.
And this is what they look like now! They really seem like new jeans to me. There was already a wear pattern, so the bottoms are darker than the top, but I don’t mind at all. I’m just really happy I don’t have to throw these guys into the Goodwill bag just yet.
I also had this floral dress that I wasn’t sure what to do with. It fit pretty well, but the pattern was a little too busy for me. I decided to try to muddle it up a bit in the dye bath, and (Again with this silly model!)…
It worked! I like the print much better now that the color is more subdued. It’s nice and wrinkled here because I wore it to church before we took these pictures. Oh well. I was thinking when I first put it on that the collar was way too high–Eric laughs at me (with me?) because I cut the collars out of all my pj shirts: I don’t like to be strangled in my sleep! But after I wore it for a while, it felt pretty comfy, so I think I’ll leave it as is for now. Many thanks to my patient photographer, who puts up with all kinds of silliness, and, in fact, appears to enjoy it.:)
