Want to update an old jacket and give a fresh look? Look at these Balmain jackets. Update a pre-loved jacket with ribbon braiding, ribbon lace, buttons, spikes lace applique or even try some zari or brocade.

Or how about replacing old buttons with large new ones like this Mulberry jacket

Love the lacey numbers in the Valentino spring 11 RTW collection. So very feminine and fairy like appeal.
Elegance is the word
Lace and Organza (probably)- so much of DIY appeal
A definite DIY possibility. Weekend mission - find a vintage lace blouse and dig out pearls and other supplies I already have. (photo scanned by my iphone from vogue Australia April '11 issue)
Other Lacey options Dolce and Gabbana Spring 11 RTW
Love the appeal of this Nina Ricci black lace dress
