DIY Day: Dip Dyed Demin Vest

This past weekend my friend, Meghan, and I dip dyed denim vests that we bought at Goodwill. I decided not to film it because there are so many videos on YouTube about this. I will just give you the quick steps to how we did it.
You need:
Denim Vest
 Medium sized Bucket and possibly small cup
and preferable do this in a bathtub or outside
We first filled the bottom of our bucket with bleach the added a little water. There was about 3-4 inches of bleach and water in the bottom of our bucket.
Then we let (one) vest sit in the bleach and checked on it every 10-15 minutes. It was probably in there for a total of an hour (some denim might take longer depending on how dark it is originally).
To make the bleach fade better with the denim just dip your vest in the bleach for a second or two and pull it out to let sit for 15 minutes. You might need to repeat that a couple times to get the fading just right.
If you want the bottom to be really bleached soak it in a little cup of just bleach for about 15 minutes or longer depending on what you prefer.
Then you are done!
This was Meghans vest!
I have no clue why this picture is so much bigger than the rest.

This is mine!

Each of our vest cost $3.99 at Goodwill.
Let me know what you think and if you are going to try this and how yours turns out.
