This is a super easy way to update any denim jacket and add some colour in to your spring and summer (when it arrives ☀️) wardrobe.
Just take a denim jacket and place it in a sink or bucket that you don't mind having bleach in. I would recommend wearing latex or rubber gloves, as a protective barrier.
Simply place the jacket in the bucket or sink and add bleach - any bleach will do. I used a large quantity and aimed to cover most of the jacket. I rubbed the bleach in gently wearing my gloves ✋ but didn't worry too much about totally covering the whole jacket.
Keep an eye on the jacket, you can see the colour being removed fairly quickly. I suggest leaving it for 1-2 hours maximum.
Then wearing your gloves, take the jacket out of the bleach and place in the washing machine.
I like to add washing powder and wash on a 40 degree wash - our washing machine does this on a 45 minute wash and generally the bleach smell is removed. As we are over dying afterwards, the jacket actually gets a second wash so this will remove the bleach smell.
Having washed the jacket, allow if to dry.
Then I used Dylon Peony Pink machine dye. These dyes are great as they contain the fixative - salt and there fore you do not need to add anything else. Place the jacket and the dye powder into the washing machine. Again I use the 40 degree wash. When the wash has finished simply hang out to dry 💕.
