I added two tee shirts (and a tank, but I forgot to get a picture of it) to the dye bath. I'd forgotten all about the lesson I learned from orange and added a few too many items to it. As I result, one of the tees came out a bit stippled. Both of these used to be light blue.
This wrap skirt from Christopher & Banks dyed pretty well. It just has a little variation in color. It doesn't really look like it is denim anymore, though. I may try sand washing some of these pieces to get the worn look around the stitching again.
These boyfriend capri jeans from Talbots suffered a similar fate. I'm sure I'll still wear them, but they look don't look so much like jeans anymore.

These three pairs of pants were all too light of a wash for me to wear anymore, so I chucked all three into the dye bath. Interestingly enough, the Chicos pants on the top didn't fare nearly as well as all the other Chicos jeans I dyed. The Lee pants in the middle had a fair amount of spandex, so they dyed with a bit of color variation, i.e. looking more like real jeans. The Coldwater Creek jeans on the bottom came out looking like dark navy pants with a bad dye job.
All of these clothes were originally in the donate pile, so I was pretty pleased with my overall results. I think dyeing denim so that it still looks like denim is pretty near impossible, though.
