Recently, I've been preparing myself and my overflowing wardrobe for uni by having a massive clearout. I filled nearly two bin bags with clothes that either didn't fit me, or that I just didn't want anymore. As you know, I'm a bit of a charity shop lover so loads of my clothes were bought on a few hauls, which meant they were pretty cheap, so I wasn't bothered about sending them back to charity. However, there were a few bits in my wardrobe that I liked but really didn't suit me, so I turned to my dye sachets and slight alterations to them up.
I then got busy with my dye. If you wanna see the method have a look at my last post on dieing, here, but remember to keep the pieces in the dye for the effect that I've achieved on the tops below! After about an hour, take the tops out of the dye and wash thoroughly with cold water. When the water starts to run clear you know your dye has been successful! I then popped the bands off my tie-dye top and hung it, along with my jumper out to dry!
As an add on I thought I'd popp some spikes onto my green jumper, which I found browsing Ebay the other week. They were around £2.99 for 100 and I felt that, by adding them to the jumper, I'd create a jumper that was bang-on trend for the Military look which is big for A/W 12.
The studs were really easy to add to the jumper, I just folded the sharp tips underneath themselves when attached to the material. For extra security, I superglued each stud to the top too!
As I had some extra studs left, I cut up some old bootcut Levi jeans and added studs to create some grunge, 90's style shorts!
Have a look at my post above for the finished pieces!
