DIY VINTAGE DENIM VEST

Hello everyone! One thing I love doing when I'm bored is making DIYs. Last Monday, I made this DIY DENIM VEST out of a denim jacket I got from Baguio City. I can't believe it, it's been with me for almost 8 years now! Since I can't wear it as a jacket anymore because the sleeves are too small for my arms, I decided to transform it into a vest. It has floral prints at the back and a little in front, making it look more vintage!




Cut the sleeves
* Start by cutting a small hole

* Then cut through it using your scissors



 Bleach it! You can bleach it any way you want. (Use rubber bands, do sectioning, whatever) 
 I made my vest shorter. (optional)

Also, I sew the sides so it would be really fit. 

 This part is my favorite! To make use of the excess sleeves
I removed from the jacket, I cut 2 strips of denim and..
 TURNED THEM INTO RIBBONS ^__^

 I tied them into the holes where the buttons go on the side pockets in front :)
