If you are anything like me you most likely already own a pleather jacket.
Super inexpensive and so tempting to buy... I've been hanging on to this one from Forever 21 for a few years now, and by Forever 21 I mean Heritage 1981, so yea its old.
While I appreciate this work horse of a garment, It was in need of an update....
The Versace Fall 2013 Menwear show last week really drove this home.
Major lust over all the bedazzled moto jackets in that collection.
The Rhinestones are from Joann Fabrics. I used about two bags of the jumbo size.
I didn't want any of the pinks or purples on my jacket, thats why I needed two bags.
Learn from my mistakes. Be careful on the glue you use. If its too strong it can eat through the foiled back of the rhinestone and make a crackle effect.
I ended up just using Krazy Glue
Make sure that you test whatever glue you use on the pleather.
I swear by this Craft Goop, but for whatever reason it wouldn't stick to the pleather.
Demonstrating some arm mobility here... it is possible in the jacket, just not super easy.
