I’m the type of person who can brilliantly look into someone else’s wardrobe and determine what must go.  When it comes to my own closet, however, I become emotional and desperately cling to everything in sight.  So when I discovered that I had four three jean jackets hanging in my closet, the thought of getting rid of one of them started heart palpitations.  Luckily, I’ve been eying a denim vest as of late, and it hit me, why not make my own.  This is an incredibly simple and satisfying DIY, that gives new life and purpose into a piece that may be lacking its past luster.

If proceeding without a sewing machine, use a hot glue gun to secure the underside of the seam.  If your jean jacket is a more rustic style, don’t worry about securing the seams as a frayed edge may look more appropriate.
