DIY the Sleeveless Blazer
The Sleeveless Blazer is still strong this season on the runways for fall and I cannot be happier because I finally live in a climate where it get’s cool enough to use – YAY!!
Whether it’s 3.1 Philip Lim coppped version or long and collarless like J. Crew, Oscar de la Renta’s leather or Monique Lhuillier’r fur –
ALL do not disappoint.
The best part?
I can show you how to recreate this look with some sewing and a quick trip to your nearest thrift store – or closet!
So here’s what you need:
- 1 Blazer, long coat, fur, leather, or trench – you are the designer!
- matching bias trim
- matching thread
- seam ripper
- sewing pins
- Ditch the sleeve. Grab your seam ripper and remove the sleeve.
- Pin lining to the armhole.
- Attach bias binding to the outside of the coat (lining included in the seam).
- Turn bias to the inside of the coat and pin into place so the bias trim cannot be seen.
- Sew into place. Whether you hand sew or machine sew bias – this is dependent on the stitch detail you wish to have.
Now go, sew, and work one of my favorite fall trends!

[…] grocery store. You betcha, belt it with a blanket scarf or sleeveless coat. But tone down the make up a little. The moment I wear it to the grocery store, I will Instagram it […]
