Sylvia from Dare to DIY shows how she embellished the lapels of a blazer with rows of chain. The look is inspired by a Rachel Roy jacket she saw. The chain is all stitched down by hand, so you might want to pop in a good movie while you do the stitching. You could also use this technique in smaller proportions (requiring less sewing) on other parts of a garment. Go to Dare to DIY for the how-to.
