DIY: Sequin Trim Blazer

    |
This month's DIY collaboration with Mckenzie from Why buy it DIY it is sequins. I chose sequins for December's project because sparkly and shiny pieces are usually worn for the fall/winter holiday season. I made a sequin trim blazer and this is an easy way for me to look festive without actually dressing up. I also made the gold foil number tee that I'm wearing. I'm so happy because I finally have a number tee in my birth year! 
Supplies:
blazer
about 2 yards of stretchy sequin trim depending on blazer measurements
fabric glue
pins
chalk/marking pen
fray stop
scissors
  • Measure around the lapels and collar of the blazer.
  • Mark the wrong side of the trim and blazer with the chalk and/or marking pen by adding dots to make sure that it will be evenly placed when glued. 
  • Pin the trim about 1/4 inch to the inside of the blazer lining up the dots.
  • Apply fabric glue to the blazer and press down onto the trim. I did this in sections
  • Let dry.
  • Cut off excess trim and apply fray stop to the ends.

  1. I'm not much of a fan of sequins especially in the day but having just at the trims of the blazer make it acceptable.

  12. Love this DIY! It really amped up the plain white blazer. Pairing it with the casual pieces makes it even more special!

  13. Thank you! :-) I want it to be casual since some people associate sequins with dressy and evening wear.
