We’ve been seeing the ombre trend everywhere lately – from clothes to hair – and we wanted to get in on the trend ourselves. What’s a better way to spend a cold winter afternoon than DIY-ing your own ombre jeans?
What you’ll need:
- White AE Jeggings
- Liquid Fabric Dye (We recommend Rit Dye, available at most craft stores. We bought ours at Michael’s.)
- Cold water
- Water bottle
Step One: Wet entire jegging in cold water.
Step two: Add liquid fabric dye to water.
Step three: Use scrap fabric to test the color of the dye. Make sure the end is as dark as you want the bottom of your jeans to be!
Step four: Hang jegging above dye bath with bottom submerged.
Step five: Watch the progress of the dye seeping up the jeggings for 8-12 hours. Spray jegging with water to re-wet the fabric and make the dye seep higher.
Step six: Remove jeggings from dye and hang over newspaper to dry. Rinse dried area in cold water. Always wash your new ombre jeans alone and in cold water!!
