Suede Shirt Upcycle

suedeupcycle

Well hello. everyone!

I have a new upcycle today! I found this (faux) suede shirt at Goodwill a bit ago. I had been playing with the idea of suede shirts ever since I saw a few at Forver 21 in the fall. I wanted one. I knew this. I just didn’t like any of the ones I found in the stores enough to purchase… so when I found this shirt, well, I figured for $3 I could pretty easily make it into something that suited me!

So anyways, here it is as I bought it:

I really love the pattern:

Basically I cut off the sleeves, (maybe a reoccurring thing for me but what can I say?) and attached a fun and colorful pattern to the existing collar. I still felt, however, that it was missing something… so I ended up painting the buttons! I feel that was just what it needed! I used an acrylic craft paint and then went over that with clear nail polish… Hey, it works!

Nifty yes? I love it.

Also, if you didn’t notice, I’ve attempted to up my photos on here a bit… I feel I’ve been kind of lazy (okay not kind of…) photo wise, so I’ve set a personal goal for myself: no more bad photos in bad lighting. It’s going to happen.
