DIY SEQUIN BLAZER
7th August 2012
- A simple black blazer
- 1.5 m of sequin fabric
- needle and thread
1. Lay out and trim the sequin fabric to the approximate size of the back of your blazer.
2. Trim the bottom to approximately the bottom of the blazer. I left mine a little lower as I wanted to create a very subtle ‘tail’ style where the sequins hung down a little further.
3. Pin the fabric along the back of the neckline and shoulders of the blazer, all the way out to the arm seams. I left a very small edging of black along the neckline – you can do this or go all the way to edge.
4. Lightly stitch the fabric onto the blazer along the neckline and down the sides of the shoulder seams.
5. Once you get to the seams under the arms and down the side of the jacket, I switched to doing a light stitch every 5cm so that it retained some movement and didn’t bunch up awkwardly when I moved around.
