DIY Balmain Sequinned Blazer and Faux Wrap Skirt

Added Jul 16, 2019

Melbourne, Austr...






I recently took part in a challenge over on instagram where I had to choose and recreate a look worn by style icon Olivia Palermo.

I chose her Balmain blazer and wrap skirt that she wore to the Balmain Haute Couture Show at Paris Fashion Week, Jan 19.

For the jacket I used Burda #6380 in View B and added sleeves from Burda 6845, which as I suspected it would, matched up perfectly.

I used cotton sateen as a contrasting lapel to give the blazer a bit of depth and to avoid the sequins scratching my neck!

I added vintage versace buttons to finish the blazer and the skirt.

The skirt is a faux wrap, closed with an invisible zipper down the centre back and is drafted by me.
