If you saw my Obsessed post a few days a ago then you might understand the dire need to make these shorts as soon as possible, so here are my DIY dip dye Tribal shorts.
I won't lie I may have some brain damage from the bleach fumes, but I'd say it was worth it.
They'll be even better with a little more wear and tear!
As for a tutorial I started with a pair of Jeans, cut them to the same length as my favorite pair of cut offs then dipped the shorts in a half bleach half water solution for a couple hours. I was expecting a peach color but I was pleasantly surprised with this pale yellow.
For the pattern all I can say is a ruler will be your best friend and maybe draw it out on a pice of paper first. I had to learn for my mistakes so don't look to closely :)
