Thrift Store No-Sew Blazer Makeover




About: Hi everyone! I'm a hardcore DIY'er, I've published 11 DIY books, just produced my own TV show called Make Your Mark for PBS/APT, I make YouTube videos every week and I'm buried under a mountain of craft sup...

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

    Whenever I hear Lacroix - all I can think of is Absolutely Fabulous! (the brilliant british TV sitcom) ; )
