Phillip Lim showcased these patchwork jeans in his winter 2013-14 collection and I must say he became my hero. Who would think that putting patches on your denim could look every so chic. I have had this on my, MUST DIY, list since February when he debuted his collection in NYFW. Check out how to DIY your own below!
Things you need:
- Denim skinnies
- Stick pins
- Needle and thread (not pictured)
When shopping for your patches you might want to try your army surplus store. I found some of patches there and the others are flea market finds and iron on’s I bought at a craft store. Either kind will work too. Iron on or sew on it’s completely up to you. First, lay your patches out on your jeans in a pattern you like.
Using your stick pins, pin all your patches into place. Then take your needle and thread and start sewing them into place. If you purchased any that iron on follow the direction on the package to iron the patch in place.
