Motel Vintage DIY Challenge


The lovely girls over at Motel Rocks asked if I would be interested in their vintage DIY challenge and seeing that I love vintage AND diy I couldn't resist! They sent me over one of their vintage levis jackets along with some fabric paint and patches to get me started and then I was free to do whatever the hell I wanted with it! As you probably know, I predominantly wear vintage as I love wearing things that no one else will really have and customising pieces makes it even more unique. I'm already a fan of Motel but I especially love the fact they sell vintage too as it's great to see pieces being renewed and loved all over again.

 I wanted my jacket to be colourful and sassy and I'm pretty pleased with the outcome! All the steps of how I made the jacket are down below :) 



Top & Trousers: Vintage
Shoes: Office
