DIY Tassel Jacket Refashion

This little khaki jacket was sitting all alone in the back of my closet for a few years now, so I decided it was time to bring it back to life. And when I think of lively and summer, I think of tassels! I've usually seen tassels come in bright colors, but I'm more of a pastels girl, so I made some fun little pastel tassels (somewhat rhymes?) for this jacket.

Since this is a lightweight jacket, I don't use it keep warm. I would mainly use it as a layering piece. This is why I decided to trade in the boring sleeves for some feminine and cute bell sleeves. 

I chopped off those sleeves!

I drafted new half circle sleeves.

The best part of refashioning is making use of what's already in your stash, right? :)
So, I repurposed these little tab pieces to attach my tassels.
(As shown below)

New awesome (in my opinion, hehe) DIY tasseled jacket! :)
