DIY T-Shirt Jacket

I made this T-shirt jacket last night.  I started with a pretty cool tux jacket that I got at a consignment store for $21.00.  Next, I cut up a t-shirt that had great graphics–mine is kind of a wood nymph, I splattered it with bleach and washed it first to tone it down a bit.

Diy back
I cut around the design, then carefully pinned it to the back of my jacket.  Then I hand stitched it on to the back going around the design two times..
Other side
I used a milliner's needle in a size 7…this makes the job much easier than just a basic needle, and you can find milliner's needles at most any craft store…
Diy front
I found some cute contrasting pieces to add to the front–I have an extensive t-shirt collection.  I've been collecting them for more than 20 years!  I love those gunky silk screened prints, I don't know why…
Diy side
I'll try and get some more photos later…
