Take a basic blazer and give it an 80s Christian Lacroix makeover with lace and gems and not one single stitch. I used E-6000 Fabri-Fuse which is washable and dry cleanable.

Step 1: See the Video Tutorial!

Step 2: You'll Need

Gold lace and trims

E-6000 Fabri-Fuse



*If you don't have gold lace, paint white lace with DecoArt Dazzling Metallics

Step 3:

Figure out your lace and gem placement

Pin it in place if you have to so that it doesn't move around

*I like to photograph it with my phone while I experiment

Glue it in place with E-6000 Fabri-Fuse

Step 4:

Glue trim around the edges and make sure to add some to the shoulder area

If you don't have gold lace or have a hard time finding it, paint regular white lace with DecoArt Dazzling Metallics in a gold tone that you like

<p>That lace painting technique is going to help me in making a Traje de Luces!! Thanks so much!</p>
<p>I need one of these for every day of the week!</p>
<p>Whenever I hear Lacroix - all I can think of is Absolutely Fabulous! (the brilliant british TV sitcom) ; )</p>
<p>Now all you need is a sword, red cape and a funny hat</p>
<p>Oooh! That got really fancy :)</p>
<p>It got fancy real fast!</p>
