A SPECIALLY DIY’ed DENIM JACKET//by grandma&mom

Today while I was at school my mom and my grandma made this jacket out of a pair of jeans.
It's still in the works: the end goal is for it to be more rock & roll/folky rather than crafty.
Pretty amazing denim engineering going on here!

 

 

 

This jacket from the i-D spread I recently posted was their inspiration:

Sea of Shoes has been denim crazy lately, huh?
I'll give you guys an update when the jacket is tweaked to perfection: if it goes well you might be able to purchase one from my mom's website when it launches!

    the construction thus far is nothing short of beautiful. I’m not sure if I’m head over heels for it, but then again, Ive never been a fan of denim jackets.

    wow, it’s fabulous!
    i “discovered” this blog today when a friend posted a link on her page. And I am amazed! Are you really only 16?
    Also, what’s your height? I really love how you put on stuff and look great, but I’m not sure if it would look that good on me cos I’m diminutive.
    Keep posting! xoxo

    _Love_ the idea, but the lace is hideous. Makes it look cheap.

    First of all, allow me to say that I’m a big fan of your and your mom’s fashion sense. However, I’m not liking the back of the jacket – at all…quite nasty looking…I hope the final product looks better…

  46. Fantastic work. It kind of reminds me of a Gees Bend quilt . . . (which is absolutely lovely).

    the only good thing you and your mom have is that you have a lot of money.
    because neither of you have style.
    money does not equal style. money equals name brands which is all you care about.
