Last week I tried to acid wash a pair of pants and, well, I dissolved them to shreds. I gave it another shot.
This time around I also made sure to buy a pair of jeans that had the brown of the cotton pre-bleached out, made sure not use too much bleach and finally, I tailored them after bleaching, not before.
I did learn something this time as well: how much colour comes out after washing them post bleach. They turned out white instead of acid washed, but the look is growing on me.
