I have been so excited for this refashion, bummed that I didn’t have enough time to take pictures during the day. But, you guys get the idea. So, I found this $6 blazer at the DI in the little boy’s section, I love how I didn’t have to take the shoulders in and the sleeve’s up. These blazers are called “shrunken blazers” and I find them flattering, comfy and perfect for spring. The jacket started out completely flat and boxy, especially in the back, making this jacket NOT flattering at all. So, I added the a sheer black bow in back which mad the jacket more flattering and hourglass-y. How I did it….
sewing machine or needle and thread
flexible measuring tape
fabric pen or marking chalk
First, made the ties – like I did here in the skirt tutorial.
Second, sew the ties on the the jacket, facing out first, so the ends are hidden when you tie the bow together. done! easy!
