As the name would imply, you can never ever go wrong with Doing It Yourself! Okay, maybe you can, but it is YOUR creation and only you can tell whether its wrong or not. DIY is one thing I would really encourage people to explore. It is the simple alternative to forking out loads to spend on simple things, things you can easily recreate and make even better by giving things you [probably] already have, your very own personal touch! Here, I decided to work with inspiration from the Dries Van Noten Dip Dye Jeans from the S/S 2011 collection that everyone has been raving about...
HOW TO: Convert an old/outdated denim jacket to a trendy vest.
The pictures are pretty self explanatory, but I'll expatiate where necessary.
What You'll Need
- non-stretch denim jacket
- needle + thread / sewing machine
- sharp scissors
- bleach solution [1 part Bleach + 2 parts Water]
|Fray sleeve edges even more if you so desire.|
|I hated the sequins so I removed them. But that's just personal preference.|
Hand/Machine wash separately for the first time, after which it can be washed with like colors.
le finished product!
