restyle on the road::bleach dyeing

so i DID go op-shopping for more new things to wear on the orchard and i found this cute pink cotton dress. the trouble was, it was a little too cute (think baby-pink) but i didn't mind because i was overdue a restyle anyway...so i had a go at bleach dyeing the lower half of it.
 it's kind of hard to tell from the photos but from the chest up it's (baby) pink and the lower half gets increasingly whiter.
 
it didn't quite turn out exactly as i'd hoped but i still like it better than it originally was.
bleach dyeing or painting is a great way to freshen up old or thrifted clothes while away from your usual stash of craft supplies.
