To add more detail and co ordination to the jacket I firstly, found a piece of gothic rose print fabric and decided to cut out all the roses individually to sew onto the jacket. I then found an old denim skirt I had from Primark that was embellished with strips of studs. Studs are rare to come across in haberdashery stores so I decided to cut the strips off and to sew them along the collar and button holes of the jacket to make it that little bit more funky.
I then added shearling onto the collar (which I had to hand sew as it was a little too thick for my machine), hemmed the edges and to finish it off scoured some scissors down the edges and arm holes of the jacket to give it a distressed touch.
I really cannot tell you how easy denim jackets are to customize. Their bang on trend and you can do it to suit your own individual style, making your version as rock chic, girly, vintage or edgy as you wish! Get the scissors out because I know for a fact you have an old jacket or denim shirt that could really do with this kind of TLC.
