making the jeans: step 2ish

i dyed these suckers on saturday from mint to medium purple, & now i'm working on step 2-3, which would be sanding, slashing, & bleaching a little.




considering slashing down the whole left leg.
please tell me your thoughts & suggestions!

Lmao double comment. But seriously, I dont think you should slash down the whole leg. If youre doing a DYI you should do something you'd be comfortable wearing outside of your house. I'm not saying it is not a cool idea because it iss. But from the looks of youre pictures there looking really awesome. The bleach is really going to set it off nicely because the purple and the washed out color that bleach gives you compliments well.

shredding jeans should be considered a full time job! it's loads of arm work.

you did a great job! as for deciding on whether or not you wanna do the whole leg, i say wear them once as is and if you feel the need for more rips - GO FOR IT!
