I was looking for my raincoat last weekend and I stumbled upon this denim jacket that belongs to my mom. She hasn't worn it in awhile, so I convinced her to let me have it and cut the sleeves off. It's Liz Claiborne. Is there anything more punk rock than a Liz Claiborne denim vest? I THINK NOT.
Put your jacket on a flat surface. I used my bed.
Cut a little with your scissors just before the sea of the sleeve. Then cut around the sleeve. Repeat on the other side. If you want frayed edges, leave a little border of denim from the sleeve and put the vest in the wash a few times.That's it! You could attach some studs or embroider your name if you're feeling super crafty. I love wearing my vest in place of a cardigan because it creates the illusion in my mind that I am cool!
Do you ever
borrow steal your mom's clothes? More importantly, is anyone else watching the "Going Into Labor Day" marathon on Lifetime right now?!
