DIY White Leather Sleeves

I'm sure that you have done that DIY project to cut off the jacket sleeves to wear during the summer, right? As every summer I feel scissors become our best-friends and never go out of our hands.  And now, for autumn the idea is to put things that we have taken away back – which would make us warmer. Doesn't that make sense?
The idea of this DIY project is nothing less, nothing more than a pair of sleeves as seen at Dries Van Noten – menswear and womenswear -, glove sleeves as seen at Maison Martin Margiela and long gloves as seen at Givenchy, Alexander Wang and others and others – also for men as seen at Zhang Chi.

All you need is:
- Leather
- A blazer 
- a pair of safety pins
- sewing machine

And all you have to do is - copy the jacket sleeves, use a sewing machine to close them and attach them - with the safety pins - to the tee or jumper, or sweatshirt SLEEVES that you want to wear them with.
