Revamping old clothes can be a great way to create edgy and one-of-a-kind looks. I combined two of my favorite summer trends, dip-dyeing and tribal prints, into one fabulous project! I turned a pair of boring denim shorts into a pair of super, stylin’, swell shorts!
- Pair of dip-dyed denim shorts
- Black fabric marker (or Sharpie marker)
- Ballpoint Pen
- Cardboard or Newspaper
On one side of the shorts trace out the tribal print pattern with pencil.
Tribal print pattern consist of many triangles, circles, and lines. Keep in mind that tiny, complicated patterns will be much harder to draw with a marker and will not look as appealing to the eye. Make your patterns bigger like the one pictured. Be creative! Follow the pattern that I have created if you wish. When done tracing the pattern with pencil, trace over it again in pen so that you can see the pattern more clearly.
Place a piece of cardboard or newspaper in the leg of the shorts (as pictured above) to prevent the shorts from getting unwanted marker stains. Carefully trace over the pattern using the marker. Take your time using the marker because if you make a major mistake here, there is NO going back. DRAW ON!
P.S. Notice the studs on the left pocket for added flair…
