I love the look of a black blazer. It’s a timeless look that can be dressed up or down. It’s perfectly versatile.
I got this black blazer at Forever 21.
Since it was from F21 it lacked any details, but I knew I could spruce it up.
I wanted to add some trip to the lapel and pockets. I chose dupioni silk because I didn’t want it too shiny. But you could use anything you prefer.
Sew it inside out then turn it inside out and press it so you have a nice flat piece with no exposed edges, about 1/2 in inch wide.
Begin pinning it on the inside of the lapel.
Do the same on the pockets.
Then just stitch it on. Try to just ‘stitch in the ditch’ of the preexisting topstitch.
I think it’s those subtle differences that make somethin much nicer.
I love the black blazer!
I have LOTS of new tutorials I’m doing!
Stay tuned for them and for Friday Fall Fashion Puzzle tomorrow!
