DIY Fashion: Embellished Bomber Jacket

1024 1024 Simone Heng

Since 2015 the bomber has been everywhere. Thankyou, Gucci! It is a style of jacket that cycles around in fashion. Yes, remember Gwen Stefani in the “Let Me Blow Your Mind” video with Eve. She had it slung over her shoulders with a bikini underneath.

Well, I don’t have Gwen abs, so I wore mine like a normal civilian, with a neutral top.

I found the bomber at a Cotton On clearance for $20. I loved the kimono-esque fabric but it needed something to make it look less “mass.”

I popped into Spotlight an bought 2 black, floral, iron on patches. I bought black sea beads and sequins and began adding the sequins into the patches.

Once the beading was done I ironed the patches in place and then reinforced the leaves and smaller tendrils with hand stitching!
