Believe me, nothing has ever looked better than being able to rock a patched up skirt. Even when you don’t feel like saying anything, verbal patches are effective enough to ward off sleazy cat callers. (Ugh, that’s the one thing I have to deal with when I first moved to NYC!) While it feels SO tempting to plunk down $200+ for a new “reworked” style denim skirt, I am at my highest when I get down ‘n dirty to turn a pair of vintage Levi’s into a midi skirt. See how easy that is?!
Cutting, gluing and sewing may take time; however, don’t let that faze you. Even if patched denim feels stiff after you try to break into your new pair, you honestly shouldn’t feel intimidated to pull it out.
Here, you can throw on your patched denim and make it look elegant as 1-2-3! Top it off with a mean mug of iced cold brew.
