Hey guys,
First of all, thank you so much for following! I reaaaallyyy appreciate it, means so much to me :) And thank you so so much for your lovely comments :)  I will definitely keep posting!
Okay, so let's start. This DIY will be how to ombre-dye your denim jacket. It took me a few hours to make this DIY. It is not difficult to make and it will be a lot cheaper if you make it on your own. The dye that I used is Dylon, in the colour Arabian Night number 16. It cost only €1 and there is more than enough dye for the jacket. What I also used was bleach and salt. I didn't used bleach to get the ombre-effect, because the colour won't flow with the denim, the end result would be probably two colours, half white and halve denim.

- Bleach
- Dye (Dylon)
- Salt
- Denim jacket
- Bucket
- Boiled and cold water
- Stick to mix the dye
- Old clothes to protect you from the dye
- Gloves

Let's start!
1. Take you bucket and fill it in with bleach. Then throw you denim jacket in the bleach and wait till everything is white.

2. Rinse your denim jacket with cold water till it's clean. It doesn't have to be super dry. Just make sure the bleach is set in the jacket, you don't want that bleach drip while you are dyeing your jacket.

3. Now clean the bucket till there is no more bleach in it and fill it in with boiled water (2/5) and (1/5) lukewarm water.

4. Fast throw the salt in it and the dye. Take your stick and mix it untill the dye is even.

5. Take your jacket and dip 3/4 fast in the dye. Then let the jacket 1/2 in the dye for 30 seconds. And last, let the bottom part (1/5) in the dye for 10-20 minutes, it depends on how dark the bottom part you want to be. What I did is, I left it for about 15 minutes. The darker you want, the longer you have to wait. (I also dyed the collar, this is optional)

6. After the waiting, take your jacket out the bucket and place it somewhere to let it dry. Wait about 10 minutes or till the dye is a bit dry.

7. Rinse your jacket with cold water. Rinse till there is no more colour left in the water.

8. Let it naturally dry.

9. And you're done!
