Studded Motorcycle Vest

New York, New Yo...






This vest belongs to my mini collection Midnight Maneuvers. I used the Burdastyle Silk Motorcycle Jacket pattern to build the bodice portion (leaving out the sleeves), and I added an attached belt to the bottom to give more of an edgy feel. I also left out the shoulder tabs and instead decorated the shoulders with gun metal studs. It was a bit difficult sewing with a thicker fabric, but I made it work and I really like how it turned out.

Material Notes

Vegan Leather (vinyl), metal grommets, metal pyramid studs, metal belt buckle, metal zippers




Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Goth/Gothic Lolita, Other, Punk

    A beautiful tutorial indeed! I have recently purchased this black leather motorcycle jacket from an online store and was thinking how I can customize it to make it look a bit edgy. That is when I stumbled upon this tutorial, and I absolutely love this look!
