Thrift Store Blazer Makeover

Thrift Store Blazers are just one of my obsessions.  I love making them over for myself and friends and have been doing it since I learned how to sew.  During my entire career as a fashion designer I have loved the work of Christian Lacroix.  The moment I saw his bubble skirt I was hooked!  For this project I married two of my favorite obsessions, thrift store blazers and Christian Lacroix.  The best thing about this project is that it's NO SEW and can be done without threading a single needle!

You'll Need
Gold lace and trims
*If you don't have gold lace, paint white lace with DecoArt Dazzling Metallics
 Figure out your lace and gem placement
Pin it in place if you have to so that it doesn't move around
*I like to photograph it with my phone while I experiment
Glue it in place with E-6000 Fabri-Fuse
Glue trim around the edges and make sure to add some to the shoulder area
If you don't have gold lace or have a hard time finding it, paint regular white lace with
DecoArt Dazzling Metallics in a gold tone 
that you like
