So it’s the middle of Summer here in Australia but I do know for some of you in Dubai it’s getting cooler and this jacket would actually be great 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.
I unpicked the black buttons (which I found hideous).
I unpicked the pockets and re-pinned them straight.
From there I re-sewed them on straight and embellished with the pearls.
I hope you like this DIY 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:
