After seeing all of the funky denim vests appearing lately, the refashionista-fairy whacked me over the head with her magic thimble, inspiration struck, I dove into my stash and created this bit of grooviness:
have dig through your hoard & create one of your own in minutes:
Snag a dowdy denim jacket.
ugh – pleated AND puffed sleeves!
Flip it inside out & chop off those sleeves.
Grab some vintage lace.
Stitch it around the outside of the sleeve openings.
Add bit of weirdness to the back for fun.
Combine the last remaining bit of lace with a safety pin, ribbon, needle & thread
to create a sweet brooch
Pin it to your lapel & enjoy the compliments that’ll roll in!
But what to do with the chopped sleeves?
Create some adorable kidlet jeans!
