DIY Chanel Tweed Jacket Makeover
So it’s the middle of Summer here in Australia, but I do know for some of
you it’s getting cooler and this DIY Chanel tweed jacket would actually be
great for outdoors or in the air-conditioned malls.
I found this tweet jacket at a
thrift store near where I live. You’ll need a pair of scissors, needle
and thread and you’ll just need some pearl beads in various sizes, and a
seam ripper/unpicker. My beads are from Spotlight.
1. I unpicked the black buttons (which I found hideous).
2. I unpicked the pockets and re-pinned them straight.
3. From there, I re-sewed them on straight and embellished with the pearls.
hope you like this DIY Chanel tweed jacket, and let me know if you’ve done anything super
creative with your thrift shop finds recently. I teamed it here with my DIY Tom Binns necklace.
