DIY Galaxy leggings and ombre shirt

Hiiyaah! It's been quite awhile since I blogged. Been really busy. Anyway, I wanted to share something.

Once upon a time, I was bored, so I made these. The end. haha Kidding. But no really, I was bored that time and was not in the mood to do the things that I really had to. Procrastinating, I decided to make myself some DIY stuff.

Galaxy leggings:
I took an old pair of leggings (should be dark-colored), bleach, blue and yellow dyes, gloves and a spray bottle (should be bottles for each of the liquid materials but we only had one).

First, line your floor with old newspapers to prevent having a lot of mess. Don gloves. Then I put some bleach into the container and started spraying it on the leggings. Remember, we wanna create a galaxy-like image so concentrate your sprays on some areas that you would have some circular patterns. These will be your nebulas. Next, open your spray bottle with bleach and using the stem of the spray, splatter some bleach randomly. These will serve as your stars. Lastly, spray the blue dye around the outer part, and the yellow dye at the center of each nebula. Voila! You now have your own galaxy leggings. Just remember to be as imaginative and creative as you can be. :)

Ombre top:
Grabbed an unused loose red shirt, turned it inside out bec of the print, cut the sleeves, the collar line and the edge of the lower part out. Soaked the upper part into a deep blue dye for a night. Washed it out the next day. Sewed to fit the upper part coz it kinda showed my upper undergarment. Ta-daaaah!

Coincidentally, our University General Assembly was themed "GAlaxy" so I wore it then. What DIYs have you made recently?:D Do share!:)
