Just tell me who isnt still obsessed with BALMAIN’S military style Jackets??? If you are a die hard BALMAIN fan like myself, then this is the PERFECT DIY FOR YOU, enjoy…


The jacket I bought already had black trim on it, but it was very simple, I didn’t like it so I decided to give it a BOOST :)

La chamarra que compre ya traia una tira negra, pero estaba super simple y no me gusto, asi que decidi cambiarla.

Start pinning the trim to the jacket, in the military design you want, once you’ve done that, start sewing it, little by little.

con los alfileres, asegura la tira negra en el diseño militar que quieras, ya que tienes la otra asegurada con alfileres empieza a coser poco a poco.

Keep pinning and stitching all the way to the bottom.

Sigue haciendo lo mismo hasta la parte de abajo.



Once you finished the front part of the jacket, start doing the sleeves in the part of the wrist, you can do 2, 3 or 4 rings, I did only 3. (its the same pinning and stitching process)

Ya que terminaste la parte de enfrente, empieza a hacer las mangas en los puños. Puedes hacer 2, 3 o 4 círculos, yo solo le hice 3. (es el mismo proceso de la parte de enfrente)

Now, start adding the buttons (If you don’t know how to do it, ask someone to show you, its really easy and you will learn quick!)

Ahora empieza a coser los botones (si no sabes coserlos, dile a alguien que te enseñe, es super facil y vas a aprender rapidísimo)

C’mon, keep stitching, you are almost finished!!!!

Vamos, sigue cosiendo, ya casi acabas!!!!


Now show that beauty off!!!! ;)

Ahora vete a lucirla! :)
