Introduction: My Faux Leather Jacket Refashion

About: Sheri Pavlović is the award winning DIY diva behind the blog Confessions of a Refashionista, the fabulously crafty corner of the internet packed with step-by-step tutorials for everything from groovy clothin...

I wasn’t really feeling the metal studs all over the lapels and collar of my thrifted faux leather biker jacket so I put on my thinking cap, raided my stash and came up with a cool new embellished look that’s much more me...

Step 1:

I was a bit concerned about how to go about removing all of those studs...Luckily they weren’t rivets and I could carefully pry them off with my fingernails.

Step 2:

Then I sifted through my stash and tried out a few different embellishment ideas before finally settling on a load of vintage buttons.

Step 3:

I arranged a bunch on the jacket, painstakingly stitched them on and 4 hours later my magnificent just-my-style jacket was complete!
