Refashion a DIY Dip Dye Jean Shorts and T-Shirt Ensemble

Remaking a Plain White T-Shirt and Jean Shorts into a Fabulous Ensemble

I am super excited for today’s post. I’ve had this pair of short and this top for a while now. Having plain shorts and a plain white t-shirt is great if you want to pair it with something more intricate, loud, or flashy.

But I didn’t like either of these pieces for that purpose. This is perhaps because both pieces scream “Do something with me!!!” And do something, I shall. Time for a refashion!

We’ll dip dye the shorts, too, but a string is needed to hang them so they don’t fall in.

After thoroughly rinsing with cold water, I let the ensemble sun dry, and then threw them in the dryer, then washer, then dryer again. They are ready for some upcycling.

I got some sequins for the bottom of the shirt, but alas, it wasn’t wide enough!!

Some really fancy ribbon, cut up into pieces, to the rescue.
