DIY Plan


So heres the plan. I'm going to turn this cute denim jacket I found at the markets for $2 into an awesome distressed jacket as seen on the forever amazing Victoria Tornegren. Have any of you guys got any tips for denim distressing, any tried and true methods would be much appreciated! I've had a look online but I haven't found anything that good.
Also apologies for bad quality iphone photos, my mum stole her fancy camera. I've actually been looking for a decent camera for myself, something that is about 16MP and around $100-$250ish dollars, so any recommendations on that too would also be great!

  1. Love this idea! Might have to go find a jean jacket myself now. (: I distressed a pair of shorts once with a nutmeg grater. (The weird ones with the holes that poke outward.) That's probably really confusing, but it worked! Good luck (:

  15. love the distressed denim jacket; I may have to do that to mine. I've been craving a way to revamp it and bring it out from the depths of my closet...

  16. Fun project! I can't wait to see how it turns out.
    I've used the cheese grater and a lady razor to destroy denim before. You can cut slices with scissors and then rub the blades along the edges to get it to fray and soften. I would start with the small elbow cuts to get the hang of it, then try the back.
    Good luck!
