A denim jacket is a total staple item in everyone’s closet. I decided to totally transform a simple denim jacket into a piece fit for a rockstar! Adding a fringe and some studs completely took this jacket to a whole new level! This fashion DIY was so easy and fun to do and left me with an absolutely amazing, revamped denim jacket. If you want to learn the ins and out of this awesome fashion transformation, my tutorial is definitely for you! Follow my simple, step-by-step guide and get started.
To kick off this jacket revamp, measure the back of your denim jacket including the sleeves. Mine came to about 51-inches.
Next, you need to decide how wide you want the fringe to be. Measure and mark the material using chalk.
Use fabric scissors to cut a strip of fabric following the markings you made.
Once your fabric strip has been cut out, it is time to turn it into an awesome fringe for your jacket. Use scissors to cut very narrow strips of fabric, leaving a hinge at the top to create the gorgeous fringe. This step is a little time-consuming but the effort is totally worth it!
Once your fringe is ready, pin it across the back of the jacket including the arms. With the fringe in place, hand sew it on using black thread.
Studs are definitely a rock-inspired detail on this jacket. Add studs to the top of your fringe. I used studs that could be easily pressed on with an iron but you may have to attach them in a different way depending on the type of studs you have. To press these on, I put a piece of fabric over them and ironed.
I am so obsessed with this revamped jacket! What other details would you add to this piece? Let me know in the comments below!
