denim up top

My denim shirt with a patchwork yoke wants me to take a seam ripper to it.
And my denim jacket from high school wants me to spray it with bleach.

ZOMG. Why didn't I think of that before? Seems so obvious. I turned my denim jacket into a vest for an 80's party I went to a couple years ago and I'm not sure what to do with it. BLEACH!!

Loving the denim top. It's sad how much of a sucker I am for most things denim.

p.s. Do take at existing items with seam rippers/spray/etc. I look forward to the results :)
