    Definitely a great DIY! I just did dipped dyed a denim vest… it came out pretty amazing.  I want to bleach everything now! LOL.  I’ll have to give this technique a try for sure. 🙂

    Fabulous!!! I love all you DIYS!


  4. RealGirlGlam says 6.6.12

    Those look so good (loving the shoes too!) and I love that you did it without a bucket. I think this way is easier for ombre. Great DIY as always!

  5. Alex (Things That Sparkle) says 6.6.12

  19. Kara Endres says 6.6.12

    That’s such a great idea! I’ve been wanting to try those fabric spray paints and also do a dyed ombre pant- I love how you kind of combined those two into one. 

  20. Hannah says 6.6.12

    Oh my gosh, this is such an amazing idea. I will definitely have to try it – thanks for sharing x

  24. Bettina says 6.7.12

    Love this one Grace! I am so scared of the buckets, so this one seems like a less intimidating alternative. And love the Sam Edelman heels, I totally ended up getting them in bronze and love them, they’re so comfy and go with everything! 

  25. kirbybee says 6.7.12

    Wow!! Love this!! I’ve done plenty of dyeing but never anything like this, something to try for the weekend!!



  26. Cara says 6.7.12

    This is awesome! I very carefully dip-dyed a tshirt in my apartment’s kitchen sink last weekend but was nervous the whole time.  Love the way the jeans came out, they are just beautiful!

    Hi 🙂
    Can you do this on blue jeans aswell? Or du you have any ideas on how to “pimp” my old blue jeans :D?

    1. graceatwood says 7.1.12

      Hi Kia,
      I’m sure you could do this to blue jeans too! You might want to try a bleach dip dye for more impact. In that case, Jenni from I Spy DIY has a great tutorial for a bleach dip dye over on her blog.

    I was looking for an idea  to dye my jeans….loved your idea gonna give it a shot

    1. graceatwood says 7.8.12

      Thank you! I hope you give it a try!

  35. […] DIY: S+S x Paige Denim Ombre Denim • I highly recommend goggles, gloves, working in a ventilated area (open a door or window), and taking a break periodically for a breath of fresh air in the other room. The fumes are strong and can make your eyes burn a bit without goggles. I bleached my first shirt with bare hands, eyes, and mouth. And had a headache for the next 1/2 hour. Then I covered up and it was a big improvement. Safety first! […]

    1. graceatwood says 7.26.12

      Thanks Fiona! I hope you try the project! So easy and not as intimidating as it looks. 🙂

    This may be a dumb question but, I honestly never worked with dye before! Does the color stay when you wash it after the first wash then? Like with detergent? Also, does it matter what quality jeans I use? I was thinking of going to Gap and getting jeggings or regular white jeans depending on what I find and I wasn’t sure if the material matters when it comes to absorbing dye!!

    Thank you!!
