Once upon a time…there was a jean jacket that wanted nothing more than to be a spring superstar…the poor thing with its too short of sleeves never thought it would be able to live out its dream until….the V.I.P. discovered it on the sale rack at a consignment shop…from that very moment that little jean jacket realized all of its dreams were about to come true…*sniff*
Surgery was the only way to give this jacket a new life as a spring transition staple item…It’s so easy, a caveman can do it (I just love those Geico commercials…whatever happened to those? I have not seen one in quite sometime…).
The pictures below represent a condensed DIY of converting a jean jacket into a vest…I am only going to share a few of my secrets with you because it’s impossible to put a warning label on some of the things I did to create my own jean vest…some might call a few of my distressing techniques foolish, dangerous, causing renal failure, risk of fire, not for human consumption, do not use while sleeping, for indoor or outdoor use only, not dishwasher safe, wearing this garmet does not allow you to fly……..
Maxi skirts, preppy shorts, and mini skirts are three items that can be worn with a jean vest to give a fun, funky, and sophisticated look to any lady. I put together three outfits to show how a jean vest is a great spring transition piece! Without further ado…I introduce my “Pre-Spring Line” featuring the jean vest DIY.
Well, there you have it folks… a fairytale ending for that little jean jacket…The next blog is going to be a surprise! Don’t you just love surprises:)
