Jeans basket weave into textured vest/jacket

Supplies: Pair of husband's old jeans. 






Started to basket weave my husband's terribly old jeans. I wanted to make a jacket but ran out of denim for the sleeves. For now it is an amazingly textured vest. Look forward to finding another pair to add sleeves.

Cut denim into panels. Rip strips leaving an edge intact. Cut extra strips and weave. Cut pattern. Pin all edges and sew all around...Put together.

  1. I've wanted to do a basket-weave skirt for a while, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to keep it together. Your vest look great, dit you just sew the sideseams or did you sew along every piece of denim? :)

    1. I just sewed the side seams and collar/hems, it will be a little loose depending on the fabric...denim is durable and holds well together. I didn't sew along every piece, just weaved them.

    1. Hi! I made 3 panels and then cut a pattern of back bodice, 2 front bodices. So no holes, just a pattern.

      Thanks!!

  25. Time and energy are not the only resources that are needed for perfect article reviewing. It also requires specific approach, dedication and a set of important writing and research skills. If you lack those, you can ask professional writers to 'write an article review for me'.

  26. ظيفة من الأعلى

    ابدأ من الجزء العلوي وقم بغبار السقف والزوايا والمنافذ والمراوح وأجهزة الإضاءة.

    تنظيف الجدران

    تحقق من بصمات الأصابع حول مفاتيح الإضاءة والزوايا. تعمل منظفات العصا السائلة من شركات مثل Tide بشكل جيد لإزالة بعض البقع العنيدة. حل آخر رائع للبقع اللاصقة هو تطبيق كمية صغيرة من مطهر الأقمشة على اسفنجة ثم فركها على المنطقة. كل ما تمسك بالجدار سيختفي.شركة تنظيف بالدمام

  27. Hello guys, I really love fashion, its not only my hobby its my life, but seperately I'm a student who ought to prepare a paper the topic of which is quite difficult and I do not think for sure whether I will be ready to cope with it, so I addressed to the proffesional writers in order to get the support and help, so if you have the same problem you can do as I and ask for help of speach or speech writing service
