After buying 1000 studs from Studsandspikes over 2 months ago, I decided this past Tuesday to put them to good use. I've had a men's Jean shirt that has never seen the light of day taking up real estate in my closet for awhile now and thought "this is the perfect time to give it a makeover!"
The jean shirt is a heavier material perfect for a "jacket-like" piece. Once i decided where to put the studs I started the 3 hour long process of applying them. Unlike a leather material, jean is easier to poke through allowing the studs to fasten to it with the help of jewelry pliers. By bending the prongs outward and flattening them, they become secure and ready to wear.
After placing the first row along the seam of the shoulders, continue to add more rows until satisfied.
The final result was definitely worth the tedious time.
