DIY Revamp: Camouflage Shirt

The ever turning wheel that is fashion has stopped on camouflage again this season. A camouflage shirt is the little black dress of over shirts. It pretty much works with everything.

Mr Price camouflage shirt

I found this rather loud camouflage shirt (talk about an oxymoron) at Mr Price which was so close to perfect save for a few minor details. For one the embellishment had to go. The original buttons were actually not that bad, but I had something better

A new perspective on mass production clothing

For the past few months I’ve been collecting buttons with a crown design from the Milnerton Market at R1 a pop. I like that even though they are completely different there’s a level of uniformity.

One episode of Justified later and I had a completely new look.

I saved all the buttons and embellishment for the next turn of the wheel, apparently Dolly Parton chic is all the range next season…

  2. Mooi taaltje dat Afrikaans. But, this is exactly what I had in mind too, a camouflage shirt, but one with golden buttons that I’d probably have to find myself. I’m gonna see if it’s possible. You did it, so I should be able to pull it off too.
