7 Denim DIYs To Try

I'm so glad we're in the age of diy denim. Denim is a great fabric to wear and play around with. Because it's such a resilient fabric, it's perfect for distressing and embellishing.  It looks great most of the time. There was that one time Topshop sold those clear knees mom jeans. It wasn't good. Other than that, denim is a good choice for everyday casual to a night out on the town.

Today's denim du jour is another fabulous $1 find from Just A Dollar thrift store. It's where I found the black vintage dress and the white linen dress. All of the pieces I've found there have been in steady rotation.

I bought the denim skirt because I liked the high waist and it wasn't super mini. The only flaw was a break in the gold contrast topstitching. Instead of fixing it, I opted to just cut the entire bottom hem off.

It frayed up very well as only vintage denim can do. I ironed on a few patches to the back pocket for an extra diy touch.
