I started with an old pair of jeans from high school... 7 years old to be exact. Back when the size of the flare on my jeans was bigger than the waistband! I had a picture of them before I started hacking them apart but it seems to have disappeared! Anyway, after a couple hours of improvisation and inspiration, I came up with this.

First I present to you the finished product:

The whole thing:

But wait there's more:

Now for the making of... I started by haphazardly drafting a pattern using a blazer as a guide:

chop chop!:

I had originally planned on long sleeves but this was pretty much what i had left after i cut out the main parts:

Shout outs to my fast-fade / erasable marker. I couldn't have done it without you.

One day whilst I was walkin'
a-walkin' through the park
a hickory caught my eye
with the most attractive bark
nervous, i approached it
eyeing branch to root
anxious, can't believe it
THIS TREE IS FUCKING NUDE!!!!

so...
take off all your clothes and
find a tree to fuck and
wrap your legs

From the book Godless:

Just Al: I know that God is real. I feel his presence in my heart
Me: What does it feel like?
Just Al: It's hard to describe Jason. It feels good.
Me: Oh. I thought maybe it was like heartburn or something.

I absolutely ADORE this!!! All the little details (lace trim, embroidered heart, ruffled sleeves, buttons) really pull it together. Plus, I love the way it fits you and I love the open collar! Nice job!
