DIY: Polka Dot Denim Vest

May 31, 2013



Spring is here and I wanted to share an easy way to transform your plain long sleeve denim button up into a fun vest for the warmed weather! Here is how I achieved this awesome vest!

What you need:

1. First off you need to cut off the sleeves! Super easy, I just cut along the arm sleeves!


Sleeves are gone!


Time to paint! I picked out three colors, light pink, melon, and a shimmery purple! You can really do whatever design you want from here. Go crazy and put dots all over! I wanted to create a gradient effect and have the dots cluster at the bottom then spread out closer to the pockets!



Once the front and back is done, let it dry and you're done!




I would recommend washing it afterwards so the fabric paint isn't as stiff when you first wear it!


Save these for another DIY project to come!

If you make this I would love to see it! Share it with me on Twitter or Instagram!

  1. Your pretty talented! I noticed your about me says you want to be a buyer. Have you ever thought about working at Nordstrom or interning there and moving up in the company?

    1. I would love too! The closest one is a drive away though. I wish it was closer!

  2. Oh. I used to work for a few years for the company up until last September. They only promote from within and it usually doesnt take long and I thought that would be perfect for what you would like to do. Who knows you could be up to bigger and better in another year!
