Listening to: Ironic- Alanis Morissette.
Using Dylon fabric paint, I mixed a grey then added A LOT of water to the paint. this is because a) denim is very absorbent so I wanted to ensure good coverage and b) I wanted the paint to look blotchy (if blotchy can look good).
Than I left it to dry for over a week (near on two) to ensure it was thoroughly dry (although my mother decided the day after I painted it to put it in my wardrobe). Ironing fixes the paint, and after a wash it apparently returns the fabric to its original softness but I was too impatient to wash it.
Than using a 50p lace dolly I found in a charity shop (ECCO in Harlow) I carefully drew a pencil border, cut out the lace pattern from within and stitched it onto my jacket, giving it a cowboy shirt sort of look.
Finally I added some 'gold' triangle studs bought of eBay to the tip of the collar.
I was at work all day so at home I got changed from my uniform into this simple outfit.
