Upcycled Giant Zipper Puffer Vest!
and a gigantic zipper makes it 20% cooler!
I got mine at the thrift store for $6. It was the color I wanted and fit great.
(It really fits me great, my sweet daughter is just my hired help...bit big on her)
Measure the current zipper on the garment...mine measures 24"
so I ordered a #30 24" zipper from orgXIIIorg...with shipping it cost me about $18.
(It was slightly longer...but I was able to work with it...fyi)
Overall the vest cost me $24.
He tooled the leather...
I love the custom touch!
I just used my zipper foot and sewed it to the edge of the vest.
right through the plastic grid plate!
and then lightly melted the edge of the zipper with a lighter to prevent fraying.
And it's done!
I love the futuristic vibe! I want to get some other zippers and
do one more geared for steampunk!
This is it!
It gives new life to old clothes!
I'm raiding my closet to see what else I can put giant zippers on!
