1  Denim vest from jeans in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by l_borg on: May 20, 2008 05:50:09 PM
this was a uni group assessment we did

our task was to recycle jeans to make a vest. the jeans we used were a really light blue so they have been dyed and then we designed the vest we wanted to make. i love the vest!!!

oh and we decided on a glam rock look for the vest (our design brief was that it was being displayed at a craft fair and it needed embelishment - our group went for functional embelishments along with decorational)


i hope u love it as much as me...

if you do please hit the 'this rocks' symbol!

this is a link to the jeans we started with
