by popular demand [one person], i made a tutorial on how to make
ombre jeans [this was the original post that spurred the video]. 
i have posted the tutorial here on youtube, so as to avoid
potentially hearing my own voice every time i blog.

just two notes:

1. since i used jeggings [and not regular denim], these jeans
turned out blotchy, which i don’t mind [but you might if you’re

2.  apparently i am some sort of a wizard and transformed a pair
of jeggings into boyfriend jeans.  or that’s just what happens
when you soak them in bleach for an hour+.  luckily i’m weird and
like the fit still [but, once again, you might not if you’re

basically, if you want your jeans to be a smooth ombre and the
same shape as when you started, use a pair of regular jeans.  if
you feel like taking a risk and potentially having a disaster on
your hands, try it out with a pair of jeggings that are in a
rough condition to begin with.

okay so that is it.  feel free to post photos of your ombre
successes [or even failures] on my blog so i can at least see
that people are using this video that i worked so hard on…
