Archives for posts with tag: do it yourself

Once you start, you cant stop. I’ve never done any crazy complicated DIYs before, I’ve mainly done quick little things that you could think of off the bat of your head. Actually, I don’t know if they can even be CONSIDERED as a DIY because it is either so basic or I just saw it as an easy alternative of how to fix something (most just clothes).

Before, I would NEVER even THINK twice about a pair of scissors in my hands going near ANY of my clothes. However, once you do it that ONE time JUSTTTTTTT to snip away some annoying threads or so, you begin to think.

Hey … I COULD cut off the sleeve since its bothering me so much. It will look like all those other shirts people are wearing now. That would be SO COOL! Ah, its JUST a sleeve, whats it gunna kill me… I’m sure I could just— oh, maybe if I justttttt do this — ohmygosh I HAVE to find that tutorial again on how to do this! Maybe if I look on YouTube and Pinterest … huh, I should do this more often!

Never be afraid to try.

You never know!

Things that are simple can be really fun. It makes you think a bit more creatively. It makes something completely your own. It can also inspire others. So, WHY NOT?

Ever find those articles of clothes that you look at and think, “What the heck is this? DID I buy this? Or has it always been in the back of my closet?” Well that’s me with this black jacket:

The funny part is that it’s a really great fit, sort of like a blazer feel, it has buttons and a zipper, but it LOOKS old and grungy. I like that feature about it, but I could never find an outfit for it.

Yesterday I came across this photo on Tumblr, and it got me thinking because I’d been looking for a nice, interesting vest for a long time now.

So I woke up this morning, 8am, god knows why, and decided to do something about this jacket! So I went from THIS:

To THIS:

I’m extremely happy with the results. I didn’t realize that simply cutting off the arms of the jacket would make such a huge difference! This makes me want to go thrift hunting now! I’m normally terrible at stuff like this, but it’s interesting to see what a pair of scissors can do! I urge you to try it to something you own, it’s a lot of fun =)

If you have any experiences, or tips, feel free to share!~
