DIY doily jacket refashion

 My latest DIY refashion is a gray, cotton, hooded, sweat jacket from Target. Follow my guide to make one for yourself!  
I'd been meaning to replace the jacket's hood draw string, which was pulled out completely in the wash. I really like this cute jacket at the Oliva Page Clothing. So, I decided to do a knock off using a vintage doily, white ribbon, and some recycled pink pajama pants cording. 
Rethreading was easy using a wood shishcabob stick from my kitchen pantry. I wrapped the ribbon end, over the flat end of the stick, rubber banded the end and pushed it through. 
I also added some vintage lace to the sleeve cuffs then removed it!
The weather has finally changed to cool temps today. So, I might get a chance to wear it tonight:)

  14. You really did a great job on this -- you lined up that doily PERFECTLY on either side and that's no small feat I'm sure! Love the extra touches with the pink ribbon and lace on sleeves and I have to agree -- I prefer yours to the original.

  16. What a fun way to dress up an outfit. Very cute idea! I just saw a vintage bike that they put large doilies through the spokes. It was so cute! I want to do something similar. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
