A lot of you, dear readers, are asking me to post a DIY, do-it-yourself, project that I have done. So, here goes one of my recent DIY project. My friend, Nirielle, has a denim button-down from her father that she wanted to use. So she asked me if I could turn the button-down into a vest or something.
Here’s the Wrangler denim button-down she wanted me to turn into a vest.
What I did was I cut the sleeves off, so that it would look like this:
From that, I used vintage studs that I bought from the local fabric stores and placed some of it at the tip of the collar.
I also placed studs at the shoulder part of the garment.
Of course after I cut the sleeves, I loosened the threads so that it would have a rugged look that would add a twist to the vest. I added more studs at the front pockets.
For the final product, I styled three looks on Nirielle.
First look: Sweet Nautical
I paired the vest with this dress that has red and white vertical lines, which looks perfect with the blue denim.
Second Look: Asian Invasion
I styled her hair with a Cinderella bun, which speaks very Korean. I also incorporated the look with bold prints. It looks very punk and street style.
Third Look: Ready-to-go Chic
For this one I paired the vest with short shorts and tank top since summer is coming soon! :))
I would really love to hear your comments on this project! I’ll read them soon! 🙂
