DIY: Leather Hoodie

    |

The last (for now) project for the leather accents series is a leather hoodie. The temperature has been cooler and hoodies and sweatshirts are one of my main outerwear pieces to grab and go. I added leather shoulder panels and a leather pocket which gave it a trendy look. I kept my outfit simple and styled it with straight leg jeans and chucks. Perfect for a chill and relaxing day. 

Supplies:
leather fabric
hoodie
chalk
pins
fabric glue
seam gauge or ruler
sewing machine

  • With the hoodie on, mark with the chalk where you would like to place the leather.
  • Use the sewing gauge or ruler to get the exact measurements. Cut out pieces in desired shapes.
  • Apply fabric glue to the seams and fold/press down. Let dry for a couple of hours.
  • Apply fabric glue to the wrong side of the leather accents and press onto desired area. Let dry.
  • Optional: Topstitch the accents.




      What is one of your grab and go outerwear piece for cooler days?
