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!
- Coat or Jacket
- Studs (if you want to put as many studs as I have, get about 150 units)
- Paper, pencil and ruler.
- 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.
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.
Here a picture of the studs legs.
Final effect of the studs on the sleeve.
I hope this post inspires you to update your coat or jacket. This coat has an impact effect, without being too much.
