David Distressing. Burning Man Capes. Half Plaid Flannels.

Here is our latest technique for distressing shorts.  David has gotten very good at it.  He has a wire brush on his drill, and has a vacuum attached to suck up the dust. DON'T BREAK THE WHITE THREADS.  That's the most important thing you have to remember.

Break the blue threads by stretching a pulling.  Then wash the shorts for 2-4 hours to remove the broken threads.

I wanted to add these capes that Irene and her roommate Annie made to wear to Burning Man.  The girls bought white silk velvet and dyed it these amazing colors for capes.  I helped with the finishing touches.  It turned out they were a little fancy for Burning Man, but pretty cool none the less.

Finally, here are some vintage flannel shirts, sliced in half, and spliced back together.
