Lets turn these regular white skinnies!
and transform them into these party rocking shorts!
First measure how long you want them to be cut, Then go ahead and chop them off!
I like to cut them a little bit shorter in the front than in the back because I have kind of a big bum, and this compensates for my bum.
I decided to make them into 5 inch shorts
Using Rit purple fabric dye we are going to color them
Fill a bucket up with 3 gallons of hot water
then mix one teaspoon of dye in one cup of hot water
Then mix the dye water in with the regular water and stir it up
This is done so that the dye is as even as posible
Put your pants in the mix and stir them constantly, make sure to check the pants frequently to that you get the right shade.
I only had my pants in for like a minute
When they are the right color it is time to rinse them out I like to start with warm water and work my way over to colder water when I rinse the fabric out.
Then Toss them into the washing machine and dry them
While they are in the washer, print out a leopard print and cut the black out with and x-acto knife
Once you have cut out all the black spots use a fabric paint marker to trace the pattern onto some pants then fill in all the spots!
That is pretty much it!
