patchwork


spotted these killer jeans on the gap website (is it just me or does that store keep getting better and better.. i mean a stella mccartney collaboration? they know where its AT)

and decided that instead of paying $70; i'd make my own with some denim sitting in my closet..
at first, i ripped the pockets off these seven jeans because i didn't want a logo on them. they ended up turning out really nice as the color change from the pockets "matched" the patches on the front.

heres the first patch i added-

all i did was just cut out the rectangles from other pairs of jeans that i had destroyed a while ago and sewed them on in random places.

and did i mention Alice in Wonderland was absolutely amazing? not to mention the makeup in itself was to DIE for. you HAVE to see it- especially in 3-D. the visual effects definitelyyy made the movie

the different colors make it... I think a color other then a shade of blue would have even did more for it... sort of placed on top overlapping part of the other one...

Love your jeans - DIY kicks $70 in the but!

Though I have been shopping at the Gap almost in excess lately, I can rarely go in there and leave empty handed!

Chic on the Cheap

Hi, thanks for your comment!

I think DIY is better than paying a lot a thing you can made with something you already have!
Great work!
