Crop Top Turtle Neck Sweater

Crop Top Turtle Neck Sweater

Check the sweater section of the thrift store for deals this time of year. You'll likely find a turtle neck somewhere on the rack. Cut across the bottom to make a crop top and use a serger along the bottom to stop the sweater from fraying. You could also fold a hem and straight sew it.

Flared Overalls

Flared Overalls were big in the late 90s, so you might get lucky and find a pair at the thrift store. If you only find a straight leg pair, use this tutorial to make them flared.

You'll definitely find one of these hats in a second hand store. Want to add cool graphics? Paint something with fabric paints or add pins and patches.

Graphic Dress Shirt

Find a huge dress shirt in the mens section. Make sure it's long enough to fit like a dress. Use fabric paint and paint a message across the shirt. Letter stencils and spray paint for fabric would also work for this.

You can do this with jeans from a thrift shop or a pair you find in the back of your closet. Try this tutorial.

Graphic Jeans

This is one you can totally have fun with. Grab all the fabric paint you have paint whatever you want. The best part about this project is that you don't really need any painting skill, spatter marks will look just as cool.

Patched Jean Vest

Patched Jean Vest

If you can't find a jean vest, find a jean jacket and cut the arms off at the seams. Use an old plaid shirt for the patch, cut a square and sew it on. Old band t-shirts would be great for this too. Cut the band graphic out of the t-shirt and sew it on to the back of the vest.
