DIY: Studs & Denim

DIY: Studs & Denim

This little DIY project is something I’ve wanted to do for ages & ages because I literally was so sick of seeing this denim jacket sit in my wardrobe & being the hoarder that I am, I refused to throw it away (or anything else for that matter). So I finally got a chance during the week to give it a new lease of life & I’m delighted at how it turned out ! A little effort goes a long way these days & wearing something which I (sorta/kinda) made myself is actually so so cool :) So below are a few pics to see how I changed it up….
BEFORE

As it was a Topshop Jacket which I bought about a million years ago, I just couldn’t throw it away.

I made a little bracelet (which I’m going to stud when I get more) from the sleeve….really cute little trick.

So easy to make any unwanted jacket into a vest.

I started by studding the pockets…the studs I got from ebay were quite big so it didn’t take too long at all.

I just put a few studs on the collar too.

It’s pretty easy to get these studs on & they make such a difference don’t they?

I put a few along the back too
I added the pearl to the bow & just sewed it onto the back -loving bows at the moment.
AFTER :)
I had a few studs left over so I added them to the back of my favourite shorts….

Really happy with the end result & can’t wait to order some more studs from ebay to fix up a few more things I have hidden in the wardrobe. I also did a bit of DIY on some shirts during the week so stay tuned to see how they turned out…I’ll have the pictures up during the week & will be featuring them in some outfit posts.
Hope you all have a fab weekend :)

Stylishly yours,

Erika x

    Looks great Erika, love how you’ve revamped it! I cant wait to get my studding on! Ive got a green leather jacket that is just crying out for some! But tell me thins, did you use a machine to stud it or did you do it yourself? Im on the hunt for a studder in galway, and Im thinking ill just have to get it on the net! :D
