You know what else we all do? Botch up DIYs! Luckily this one still had good results!
HOW (not) TO DIP-DYE/BLEACH A DENIM SKIRT
1. Find a skirt! Mine was on super sale at J.Crew and is a happy bright neon pink. Get it in store, $60 is too much!
Step I skipped: Make sure it's 100% cotton! The skirt below is about 87% cotton and the rest is rayon and spandex, making for a very comfy skirt that WILL NOT bleach the way you think it will.

4. Put your hand up on your hip, and do the dip!
|When I dip, you dip, we dip.|
5. Let it lie in wait.
|Dear New York, please stop raining.|
|I need those.|
As you can see, the bleach made my skirt darker and more purple/fuschia than neon pink. Not what I had planned, but still really cute!
I saw a cotton denim men's shirt in Uniqlo on sale, so this DIY may have a part two in the near future! Are you going to try it?
