Scrappylace Rugbystripe Hoody

Added Jul 27, 2008

Salmon Arm, Canada






Found a fun light jersey top at the thrift store. Tore it apart at all seams, ripped the front and back in vertical halves. Put it back together, seams out and extras in!

Paint: right front + back, stomped all over with combat boots; left sleeve, various sized yogurt containers and coffee cans; hood, a couple skeleton hands for good measure (if you’re a horse, that is.) No pictures were taken with the hood actually up, so you’re going to have to take my word on that.

Trashed the cuffs, made minimal effort putting them back together with safety pins.

Hood and right shoulder have lace detailing (mohawk- + epaulette-esque, respectively)

Zipper down the front, roughly.


Material Notes

Thrift store top, black house paint, yogurt containers, combat boots, skeleton hand stencils, lace, safety pins

    I love it! It combines the best of 2 worlds, cheap and looks super!
