Chain necklace collar
[Step by step tutorial]

Hey guys here is another great DIY project you can easily create without any sewing skills. So grab your pliers and a simple chain from the hard wear store. I used an old neck chain with a broken closure for my collar. So maybe you also have an old broken chain you can give a second life to.

Did the college jackets lose their hype? Don’t think so. I think there is always a place for a cool college jacket in every season. The greatest thing about the sporty piece is that it’s so versatile.  In Fashion industry there are no rules about the color or form. Leather, spikes, lace… Everything is possible. Btw the first Letterman jackets were created for the best Harvard University players in 1865. 

So today I am sharing with you a great DIY project I’ve originally created for the German fashion magazine COUCH. Follow this this step by step tutorial and turn your simple blouson into a very cool Letterman jacket.

The ends of the pockets should have a Y-cut

Now attach your appliqué with the iron or sewing machine (depends on the type of your appliqué). You can create your own appliqué design by combining letters with figures. Usually the Lettermans have their appliqués on the right chest but you can put yours where every you think looks the best

Pin the jacket zipper to the center front and sew along it with the zigzag stitch

Now attach the zipper to the slash pocket with the  pins. Take your time. To make a slash pocket requirers some sewing skills. If you a newbie to the DIY world I would suggest you skip this part. If your want to learn how to make one HERE is a great site for tutorials.

Sew on the zipper with the zigzag stitch

Cut 2 half moons out of the cotton fabric. The pocket lining should be able to cover the opening. After your secured the lining with the pins sew along the edges with the regular stitch. Basically the lining will be attached to the garment. That means the  seam will be visible on the other side. So try to make a pretty stitch 🙂
