DIY: Pastel Colorblock Denim Jacket

June 23, 2012

LET'S GET STARTED!!!

Applying the studs to the denim jacket is optional.
 For color dye I used RITZ but their are many other different dyes to choose from. Another option for a color remover is bleach.

In your bucket, mix the hot water with the RIT color remover and salt! Stir until everything is dissolved completely. I recommend you wear gloves during this dying process.
I left my denim jacket to soak in the color remover for one hour but it didn't turn out as light as I wanted it to be, so I soaked it in bleach for more two hours and it came out fine. Wash and dry your jacket  when done! NOTE: All denims vary, so lighten your denim material until you are satisfied.


The bleached really lighten the jacket. I am satisfied with the light wash color, its time to DYE IT!


 In your bucket of hot water , mix 1/2 a cup of salt and your pack of dye ( the RIT liquid dye in the bottle does not require you to add salt). Stir until everything is dissolved.
Dye half of your denim jacket with your first color (recommend you start with the lighter color) for about 20 minutes or until satisfied. Constantly stir dye to prevent uneven spots from forming. Repeat the same steps with your other color for the other side.
Note: The hotter the water, the darker the colors will come out.

 Dye other side carefully

 To dye the sleeves purple, take the pink sleeve and put it in aquamarine dye. Then take the aquamarine sleeve and place it with pink dye. The colors should eventually turn lilac/purple after a while! Wash and dry, when done.

For the finishing touch, ADD some STUDS! HERE is a great tutorial if you need help achieving the studded shoulder look!

 All done! You now have a unique denim jacket. I added a pink bow and some studs to the jacket!

I can't believe this is the same denim jacket I got from the thrift store for less than six dollars! Doing DIY projects are such a thrill for me. I am in love with the spiked shoulders, I truly feel like Bowser from Mario Brothers , hahah! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, much LOVE!

  26. How did you do the front bit of your hair??

    this question wasn't thought through, now I'm thinking it will take you a while to type the process basically enough for me to be able to understand it

    if it does, just pretend all this comment said was "oh my, the jacket is so purtay, your fingers must hurt" because that works fine for me, it was my plan b

    ok, yeah
    pretty jacket hehe

    1. Your funnyyy!!! :) Lats go with plan A
      It will be hard to "type" how I did it,.....but ill try!
      I basically took a small portion of my front braids and wrapped it loosely around in a circle, I am in the process of taking my braids out right now other wise I would have done a video or post about it. Hope this helps though, hahah
