Today is a double treat! A DIY & “What I Wore Today” in one!

Some of my veteran readers might remember this denim jacket I acid washed a few years ago. I’ve been playing with the idea of turning into a vest for some time now and finally got around to doing it at about 3am this morning. Luckily, I didn’t ruin it in my sleep deprived induced delirium.

I was a pretty simple thing to do. I simply grabbed a pair of scissors and cut* the sleeves off and added studs to one shoulder.

*I started a hole with the scissors and then ripped the rest in order to give the sleeves a distressed look. The rip will inevitably move away from the seam. When it does, simple cut close to the seam with the scissors and then continue ripping.

I also had to hem (hand stitched) about an inch and a half worth of fabric from the sides in order to make it fit closer to the body.
