Who doesn't love getting the designer look for less? With this simple sewing project, you can combine two plain sweatshirts to create a stylish cape that Coco Chanel herself would be envious of. This Chanel-Inspired Capelet Tutorial is the best way to upcycle two budget-friendly sweatshirts into one expensive-looking jacket that looks trendy and cozy on cool autumn days. Paired with your favorite fall boots and jeans (and oversized sunglasses, of course), you're sure to be the most stylish person in your neighborhood. This DIY cape is a great excuse to raid your hubby's wardrobe for two of his old sweatshirts to give yourself the ultimate look for less. Go simply sophisticated this fall with this easy sewing project.
