I may be a little late on the bleaching trend, but I don't care. I wasn't really that into all the dip dye denim shorts I saw this summer, but then I remembered that I had a dress hiding in my closet that already had a few accidental bleach spots. I thought two things: 1) this dress would make a great skirt, and 2) why not add more bleach and make it look intentional? So I did. And now you can, too.
One tip I have for this project is to take your time. You can always add more bleach, but you can't undo what you've already done. The bleach takes a while to react with the fabric, and goes through several stages before bleaching is complete. The spots I sprayed first turned green before turning white, and then the spots continued to grow. I suggest spraying a little, letting it sit, and coming back to it as many times as you need to.
I love how my skirt turned out! It looks like the misty sea waves are splashing up around my legs when I move. Have fun creating your own! I will post more pictures of how I styled it next time.
