Rarely a D.I.Y on clothings, this has to be one of my proudest work. I’ve worn this denim shirt quite a few times & so it was time to give it a second life. Studs are pretty difficult to find in Singapore, most are the glued on ones & can be quite pricey so last month I placed an order on Studs And Spikes for various items. For this D.I.Y I used the Cones Standard English 77 Golden studs. The quality’s really good, not those which are soft & flimsy. This is really tough, hence the amount of strength you need to use while studding even though the shirt was of a relatively thin material. Shall not type further & move on to the steps.
I personally love the shoulder pads on, just creates such an extra oomph. In fact I thought the paddings I got wasn’t thick enough. Here’s a tip for girls out there: if you happen to buy clothes/ bra tops with paddings in, you could use it as shoulder pads too (if you don’t use it for its original purpose that is), save the extra money. I thought of this only after I bought the shoulder pads when I’ve three pairs of such paddings lying around at home. Will probably use it for other clothings. Can’t wait to wear the vest out. Always wanted a denim vest & now I’ve one with studs on. Simply awesome.
