Perfect to go with that oversized tank top.
I had already done this when I made this tutorial...obviously...but it's mostly in the folding technique more than anything else, and I could take pictures of that after I was finished.

    Once you're finished, take your string, and tie the shorts in three places, so that they stay folded during the process.

    My bleach mixture was 2/3 bleach and 1/3 water. I used my gloves and dipped the shorts in, then removed them and let their color lighten until I thought it was bright enough.

    After letting them sit until the colors are your liking, dunk them into your bucket of water.
    Lay flat to dry, or hang on clothesline.
    Viola! Done.
