My initial plan was to get this post up yesterday, but to be completely honest, school has been seriously kicking my butt; And I know it’s only going to get worse as the semester progresses.
I will survive. Glendaly, you will survive.
I talked about making this video a year ago on my YouTube channel, when I first started seeing distressed denim jackets everywhere. I loved the looked, but hated the price tag; some places were, and I’m sure still are, charging hundreds for this type of denim jacket. It’s insane.
It’s insane because, from the moment I laid eyes on this jacket, I knew I could recreate it myself. The only con about that is that it’s a bit of a tedious project. But good things come to those who wait, and slow & steady always win. Putting in the time and effort guaranteed that I would have a one-of-a-kind, personalize denim jacket – something that no one would have but me. That alone made this project worth while.
In total, this specific denim jacket took me 4 sessions, an hour to roughly 2 hours long each session. Am I in love with it? Was it worth it? Yes, and definitely yes.
Here’s how I DIY’ed & distressed my thrifted denim jacket:
Thank you so much for stopping by.
