HOW TO CUSTOMISE THE BACK OF YOUR DENIM JACKET

06.May.2020

Here at Levi’s®, we love our old-school band tees — whether they’re hand-me-downs or a product of a great thrifting haul. One of our favorite ways to wear them is on the back of a Trucker Jacket. In this simple DIY, we teach you how to transform the back panel of your denim jacket by fusing it with a graphic tee.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Trucker Jacket

T-shirt

Scissors

Pins

Chalk

Ruler

Thread

Needle

STEP 1

Cut the sides of your T-shirt along the edges.

STEP 2

Lay the graphic over the back panel of your Trucker Jacket, and add chalk marks along the panel seams.

STEP 3

Pin your T-shirt to your Trucker Jacket to keep it in place.

STEP 4

Chalk a ½-inch buffer to allow room to fold and sew. Fold the edges of your T-shirt underneath and pin them to your Trucker Jacket. Repeat this step on all sides of your T-shirt.

STEP 5

Sew your tee to your Trucker with a basic running stitch. Remember to keep stitches small and even.

If you can’t bear to cut up your old T-shirts or don’t have an extra denim jacket to customise, shop our selection of Trucker Jackets and Graphic tees to make a customised piece of your own.

This piece was created by our Levi’s® Tailor Shop tailor Bria Cheng.
