Well, you know when I accidentally ruin an article of my clothing (bleach this go-’round) that it is probably destined for one of three places:
1) I’ll make something new for Sis (a la “It’s Not Ruined… It’s Just Resized“).
2) I’ll make something new for myself (a la “Red to Ruffles: Simple Upcycled Wrap Dress To Cardi“).
3) I’ll just go with it.
I chose option THREE. You can see a little bit of the splatter in the photo above. Actually, I was cleaning the glass-enclosed shower when my bum brushed up against an already-scrubbling-bubbles-sprayed shower wall.
So I laid out the dress on my laundry room floor and sprayed the whole thing with scrubbing bubbles, you know, as any logical woman would do.
It started lightening up the fabric quickly. So pretty much as soon as I’d spritz the front, flipped it over, and spritz the back, it was ready to throw in the washer. I washed and dried it as normal.
The super casual fabric plays really well with the loose “pattern” of the spray.
And before you can say Bob’s your uncle, this casual summer dress is ready to go again! Hooray!
So, what do you do when you mess up a piece of clothing? Do tell!
That’s an awesome idea!!!! I have a skirt that might work on 🙂
What a clever idea! The finished product is so pretty.
