How do I fade the colour only on an area of a pair of jeans?
posted by funambulist to clothing, beauty, & fashion (10 answers total)
I removed an embroidery pattern from a pair of denim jeans, but now that spot that was covered by the stitching is darker than the rest of the fabric, so the shape of the pattern still stands out.
How do I fix this? Any special products that I can apply only in that area?
Preferably something cheap, as the jeans themselves were less than the price of a CD (bought them at a street market) so I'm not going to go nuts about it, but I like the fit so I'd really like to be able to wear them without that ugly "stain" where the pattern was.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
(I searched for methods of fading jeans but only found some instructions on how to fade an entire pair of jeans in the washing machine, or using tie-dye methods for creating patterns, which is not what I'm looking for...)
