Denim Jacket

Two Denim Jackets That Give You 4 Jackets!

I had this idea to spilt denim jackets in half and be able to reattach a different half. I have tried this numerous times with zips but I could never get the zips to sit flat - not sure if it’s my sewing skills or the fact that I use different weights of denim… dodgy excuse even to my ears - zips aren’t my greatest skill set!

Anyway, totally unexpectedly my subconscious came with the answer. Popper studs. I’d previously bought a length of popper studs to make bodysuits and by the time they arrived I’d gone off the idea (maybe nows the time to relight that idea!). So I decided to use the popper studs (which come in a length of black tape) to reattach the two pieces to make a complete jacket.

I have been cutting jackets in half down the centre back and re sewing them together in different ways for a while. Its a cool and easy thing to do. Many other designers are also looking to do a very similar thing, for example SJYP have made this fantastic jacket...

I love the contrast of the blue and white denim - white denim being actually very hard to get second hand or in a vintage form. So a little light bulb 💡went off in my head - why not try bleaching... Design Project to follow shortly but for now I couldn't help showing it off!
