Update your coat with studs

la foto 1 (1)

Another garment in my closet that needed urgent updating… And I’ve been in love with the look of the sleeves with studs. So let’s get to work! Here I show you how easy it is to update your coat, and you don’t need to know how to sew.

Your coat also suffers from dullness and outdatedness? The studs are a good alternative!

Materials:

  • Coat or Jacket
  • Studs (if you want to put as many studs as I have, get about 150 units)
  • Paper, pencil and ruler.
  • Chalk
  • Scissors
  • Pliers (if you don’t have, you can bend the tacks with the tip of a knife)

In my case I removed the original pockets. If you do the same and it leaves a mark where the pocket was sewn (like my picture) you can eliminate it steaming with the iron and a thin cotton cloth in the middle so the iron doesn’t leave marks.

Process:

1. Grid the paper using the ruler and pencil (this will be your guide to put the studs at the same distance)

2. I’ve drawn of 3.5 x 3.5 cm squares.

3. Punch holes in each corner, just enough to make a mark with the chalk through it.

4. Place your template on the sleeves and mark each hole with a dot using the chalk.

5. Place the studs one by one on the dots. Pierce the fabric and fold the legs from behind, make sure they are well set.

I hope this post inspires you to update your coat or jacket. This coat has an impact effect, without being too much.
