DIY Metallic Shoulder Flannel

October 16, 2014

A fashion DIY for you! Fall means flannel and I wanted to do something fun to mine to add some sass. Let's not even talk about how hard it was for me to find the perfect flannel. I wanted to make sure it felt right, you know? Maybe it's just me! I've seen something similar to this with sequin, but I felt that wasn't really for me, so I came up with a DIY to make this beauty!

What you need: 
Flannel button up
1/2 yard lame fabric
Sewing machine or needle and thread

To get the shape of the shoulder yoke, I pinned a piece of tissue to the flannel to trace out the shape.

Once I had the shape, I pinned the tissue to the lame.

Cut about 1/2 an inch away from the tissue. This will give you enough space to iron and hem the raw edges.

Pin & iron the lame. Once I ironed the fabric I took the pins out. This fabric is incredibly thin so make sure not to iron on a high setting.

Pin the lame to the shoulder. Sew to the flannel.

And you're finished! It's a simple update to a fall tradition and definitely an eye-catcher.

Thanks so much for reading!
