Suggestions for Denim Vest?

aconfusedidentity asked:

Do you have any ideas for things to do to a denim jacket? I’ve already cut off the sleeves 

truebluemeandyou: Go to truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/jacket and on page 1 and 2 I’ve posted vests with inserted sweater sleeves and on page 3 there is a restyled jacket with leather sleeves. There is also a cool button back (skull) denim jacket tutorial here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/post/10640376036/diy-embellished-skull-button-back-jean-jacket-tutorial

What are your suggestions?

callasoreon answered: You can make really cool designs with safety pins! 

truebluemeandyou; I have two safety pin tutorials with a crown here and the other with wings here.

inspirationrealisation answered: knitted sleeves or use the sleeves of a sweater or a sweatshirt! 

whaddaworm answered: you can add patches to it, like these http://www.iamvibes.co.uk/products

truebluemeandyou: you can also get different looks if you don’t want to embroider or use patches with iron on tee shirt paper.

wittywallflower answered: Are we still doing the ombré thing? Could dip dye or bleach it

Truebluemeandyou: I’m still seeing lots of dyed/ombre denim. You can check my blog out here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/bleach and  truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/dye

rainbowelbows said: I love cutting out the back and replacing it with lace, or adding lace detailing on the pockets. (See the A Beautiful Mess denim shirt tutorial.)

jessicariddle answered: bleach it ! or just the top or bottom half far a gradient affect.
