Denim and Lace: Vest

Hello hello!

This post is a bit late… I know. I’m slacking. Oh well. Its here now!

I have a new upcycle to share! It is probably one of my favorites so far!

I made a vest! That’s a new one for me. Does anyone remember the denim and crochet shirt I did a while back? Well, to make this vest, I used the back from that shirt which I had cut out, as well as some thrifted lace curtains (which I found for $6 unopened not long ago and snagged to use as fabric!)

To construct this vest, I traced the denim part I had onto the lace and then cut that in half to create the two sides of the front of the vest. I then sewed it all together on my trusty sewing machine.

I still felt as though it needed a little something extra… a little more personality. I then decided to add a denim pocket to the front. I had a denim dress in my pile of stuff to work on that had pockets on it, so I simply took one off of the dress and attached it to my vest. Simple. I love when things work out like that…

Yet it still was missing something. I dug around in my random things box for awhile and came across some studs I had pulled off of an old belt I had in high school (I know, don’t judge me…) I decided these were exactly what I was looking for! I attached three to each shoulder and then three to the pocket. Presto.

I really love this new vest!
