I don’t really shop at Witchery because I’m too petite for their long clothes, but I did see this jacket and love it recently, because I’m a sucker for military styling.
I don’t have $229 to spend on a jacket (and if I did I wouldn’t buy it from Witchery anyway, I’d be on The Outnet pretty quick), but I did have an old military jacket that I’d bought from Dotti about 3 years ago.
Then I found a seller on Ebay that sold sequinned appliques.
They are just gorgeous! After that I sourced some fabric glue – it’s important to buy proper fabric glue and not rely on PVA – when you wash the garment, PVA will peel off. So then I glued them on, and had to weigh them down for four hours until they were done.
Et voila! The applique’s were about $3 each, and the glue was $4. A wardrobe update for $10 isn’t bad at all.
