Colorblock Jeans

June 25 2021

Why choose one color when you can have both? We’re loving the colorblock jean look, takes any outfit and instantly makes it interesting. Our secret is to use a wide paintbrush to get those edges really neat and clean.

Instructions
  1. Prewash your jeans and leave damp.
  2. Fill plastic container or stainless steel sink with enough hot water (ideally 140F) for your 501s to move freely, roughly three gallons.
  3. To help enhance the color, add one cup of salt.
  4. Add one tsp of dish detergent to help promote level dyeing.
  5. Wearing rubber gloves, shake Rit bottle really well. Pour half a bottle (1/2 cup) of dye into dyebath and mix well.
  6. Carefully dip one leg into dyebath until you meet the center seam by the zipper. To be extra careful, place the other leg in a plastic bag to keep any dye from getting on the other leg.
  7. Leave the other leg undyed or repeat Step 2-5 to make another dyebath to create a two-tone color block as shown.
  8. For a clean line between colors, use a wide paintbrush with the remaining dyebath to paint along the center seam.
