I've had this top for years, but for the last 18 months I've only been wearing it around the house or beneath other tops because I spilled some bleach on the front of it while cleaning the bathroom.
When I ruined it I decided I'd try to bleach a design onto it to cover the damage, but it took me a long time to get round to doing it!
On Thursday I finally bit the bullet and had a go:
I put a plastic bag inside the top in order to protect the back and then used a paintbrush to apply the bleach, except for the leaves which I did with a sponge for a lighter effect.
I didn't use proper fabric bleach, I used Grot Buster because I wanted to match the shade of the original stain! I'm sure that it was pretty bad for the fabric, so I'm going to hand wash the top in order to keep it alive as long as possible!
I'm really happy with how it turned out. I might add more to the design to cover some spots of bleach I got on the right side of the top when I was working on it. Perhaps a crescent moon?
What do you do when you ruin clothing you like? Do you try to rescue it in some way?
