This vest I made from an old pair of jeans, and the lining from an old pair of white pinestriped pants.  I think I made it a little tight, but its pretty cute!







And lastly, I got this t-shirt online, LOVE the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, I almost forgot about it since its been so cool where I live over the summer!  So, I haven't gotten to wear it much, especially now that its fall.  Sorry about the picture, they all turned out pretty dark since the lighting in my room sucks and I couldn't find a better spot....  The back of the shirt has a small bow.  Tongue  





Phew, The Blue sweatshirt took the longest, probably the hardest thing I ever tried to make!  Made from an old men's sweatshirt that took forever to resize, and the high collar is highly inspired by Joodito (whose designs I am in love with, and I'm sure could never be quite as good as...).  I found a pair of pleather pants for FIVE dollars at H&M, could not pass that material up. 





Side view of the the collar--

I'm still thinking I should add more details, any good ideas? 

Let me know what you cool kids think!

Since I never measure anything and suck at explaining almost anything... I cannot do a tutorial.  Sad  But you're in luck, I got the tutorial from this chick!  I just modified my vest's design.
