First DIY post ---> more to come


So when I'm feeling a little sick and not in the mood to go out, ideas start to come. I bought this H&M blazer a while ago during sales. When I got home I was not too happy with it so it was just hanging in my closet untill today! I saw a jacket on some blog and it was a normal blazer with leather sleeves ( ding ding ding DIY!!). They sell a jacket like that in the Zara, thought of bying it but why do that if I can make one myself?? The leather jacket is a really old one from H&M aswell. Wasn't a big fan of the shoulders so didn't like wearing it too much.
Putting sleeves from another jacket on to another one is not that hard, but I don't think you can make it if you don't have any sewing experience at all. It is obvious that when you do this the sleeve doesn't match the jacket you are trying to adjust. At some point I had some difficulties with it, but as you can see it turned out just fine. Can't wait to show you guys an outfit post with this baby!
