Remember my thrifted faux leather biker jacket from a Rock Star Thrifty Thursday?
I wasn’t really feeling those metal studs all over the lapels and collar so I put on my thinking cap, raided my stash and came up with a cool new look that’s much more me:
Here’s what I did:
I was a bit concerned about how to go about removing all of those studs…
Luckily they weren’t rivets and I could carefully pry them off with my fingernails.
Then I sifted through my stash and tried out a few different embellishment ideas before finally settling on a load of vintage buttons.
I arranged a bunch on the jacket, painstakingly stitched them on and 4 hours later my magnificent just-my-style jacket was complete!
Awesome from the front
and wicked from the back!
