DIY: Denim Cargo Vest

July 26, 2012

There are a few denim vests on the market right now that had me convinced I needed this staple in my summer line up (like such). Here is a way you can add one to yours without shelling out the big $!
{This was the inspiration for this DIY: pinterest via Harpar’s Bazaar}

Check your local thrift store for a denim jacket. That is where I found mine!

Denim Jacket
1. Cut off the sleeves as close to the hem line as possible. (Use sharp fabric scissors)
2. Cut the other end of the sleeve and cuff off at the length you want your pockets.
3. Flip them inside out and sew about 1/4 inch in along the end opposite of the cuff.
4. Flip back outside in and line where you would like the pocket to go. Stitch from the inside of the vest  all along the four sides of the pocket. Be careful not to sew through the top part of the pocket. This part may seem daunting, but it was actually pretty easy!
Total time: 20 minutes
Total Cost: $5
