DIY Bleached Chambray Shirt Dress with I Spy DIY

Hi everyone! It’s Jenni from I Spy DIY. I’m back with the fourth part of my series of DIY projects all around denim this Back to School season. This project is a bleached denim dress, which I did with my favorite chambray dress from AEO but you can use any denim piece as well. Try this technique on jeans, denim shorties or even a chambray shirt!
