We see customized jean jackets everywhere..... but the best part is they're all different! Rocking denim is always classic, but to really showcase your individuality, you have to DIY! There's thousands of ways to make it O ofa K! (one of a kind ((dork)):
I could go on for days..
SO, this is what I did. Feel free to bite my style if you dig.......
start with any jacket
i decided to cut the arms off with a seam ripper
then i soaked it in bleach with a little bit of water for about 30 minutes, the lotion bottle kept it completely submerged
this is how it looked after i washed and dried it
at first i wanted to safety pin the arms back on, which looked awesome but then decided i wanted a vest because i have far too many jackets
then i started designing areas with safety pins. creating patterns symmetrically on each side.
this is the result of that
then i safety pinned the top corners so i could drape chains for embellishment
now on to the back, i decided to stud the whole back panel
you need a nail, a ruler, and a hammer
first draw out the pattern you want i just measured dots all across the back every inch
first hammer in the nail for a nice clean hole, then push the stud through
flip it to the back and fold down the back of the stud
like so. obviously studs are different, but this is how you use these particular kind
half way done.....
oh, and you will cut yourself many times
this is the drape work i did on the front with plain small chains from michaels. so easy, you just slide the chain on the safety pin and close it.
the back finished:)
the front finished
now do one of your own!
