^ Thanks so much, Softgrey. I think I am just going to get it because Burberry had their final reductions and it is now 799, so its now on hold... I doubt it will be a problem finding someone to tailor it.. they probably have a tailor at Burberry. I'll post a pic when I get it!

This thread is so inspiring! I wish I had the talent... :p
Can anyone give me any tips to fade jeans? I have a pair of jeans that are really dark, and I would love if they looked a bit "used"...

I went through the first 10 pages, then the last 2 pages of this thread, so I hope I didn't miss the answer hidden in between, but has anyone tried reducing the fade on their jeans?

I have two pairs that have a ridiculous amount of fading on the butt, and I'm thinking of getting some rit dye and dying the fade out. I'm trying to avoid darkening the jeans as a whole, since I'm okay with the color of the rest of the jeans - any tips?

One pair of jeans has leather detailing at the waist, and I'm wondering if there's a good way of blocking the leather so it doesn't get dyed along with the rest of the pants...

Thanks for any advice!

I haven't made it yet, it's just a project on my computer

If I print it I'll have it professionally made, I don't think iron ons would lead to fine results for anything else than photographies (but I may be wrong, never tried it).

Which one would you print if you had the choice ?

Adonf, I prefer the middle one too...

Is it possible to dye suede shoes?
If it is, how can I do that? Thanks!
