The Look: 80's + 90's + Patches +DIY

  Fun Fact: I started this DIY as one of the things I check off my bucket list. It was to create a bomber jacket and a pair of jeans filled with my favourite patches from the 80's and 90's and it didn't matter how long it took to create. It took two years!!! Ahhhh! And I don't think I will ever be finished because the back and the sleeves of the jacket still needs some. It sounds insane because I didn't want the pressure of just buying a bunch of patches and throwing them on to fill up the jacket and jeans. I wanted it to mean something. I wanted to collect the patches slowly and figure out certain patches that are super hard to get and hunt them down on the Internet.
For example, the Nintendo controller patch is super hard to find and I had wait for another one to come up because I was in a bidding war on EBay and lost! Hahaha! Also, the Mario Brother patch.. but Mario as a racoon, is a difficult one too! But by far, the hardest one to find was the Archie comics circle patch and the Ghostbusters vehicle. So waiting for patches to pop up again and deciding the placement of them on the jacket and jeans, was the hardest part. I even created my own trolls for the jacket. I found vintage plastic troll faces from the 60's on Etsy and then added/sewed faux fur for their hair on the jacket. This is because troll patches don't exist. Or I have never seen them. I also found a bunch of patches at the flea market and my friends and designer friends started collecting them and making them and sending them to me as well because they knew about my on going project. The hand sewing also takes forever! (And a lot of screams from pricking myself). A ton of them started as iron-on's but what happend is, since a lot of the patches are old and vintage, the glue isn't as great as it used to be. So, I end up sewing them on, which is a challenge in itself, because these patches have a mind of their own! lol! So, even though I am technically still collecting patches..., this DIY is pretty much finished! YAHOOO!!!
I hope it's inspiring and hope that everyone tries to make one. They are super fun.. just don't limit yourself on time!

I've seen some pre-made patched blazers, jackets and jeans appear on luxury e-retailers, and have been contemplating whether it would be better to DIY or buy brand new and this clinches it for me. Better to DIY and have each patch mean something, rather than look like everyone else!!!
