Altering a Denim Vest for Summer

I love denim but denim and Summer don’t always mix too well. I have the perfect solution!

Altering a Denim Vest

I usually have an old vest or two hidden away in the back of my closet. Pick a vest, then look for a few patches or areas that are surrounded by thick seams, mark them if you need to, and then cut them out leaving the seams intact.

Denim vests usually have such strong thick seams they retain their shape and don’t fall apart. In fact, they improve with age. After a fews wears and washes, they get some great fray action on them.

What you need:
1. An old vest
2. Scissors
3. Confidence
