I've had this cute leather jacket hanging in the back of my closet for quite a while now. I'd love to wear it but it has these thick shoulder pads that make me feel way too boxy. Which I don't particularly enjoy. So I set out to remove them and it was pretty quick and painless. You can totally do this in 10 minutes or less!
What you'll need:
- Sewing machine(Or you can do it by hand with a needle and thread)
- seam ripper(Optional)
So most jackets/coats will have an inside lining.
You want to reach inside the arm of the jacket and pull the inside lining so you can locate the underarm stitching.
Pull out the shoulder padding out so you can see it all.
Trim away the padding
Restitch the Seam
You want to use the original folds and sew over the original seam by holding the two edges together and doing a simple stitch. That's it, you're done!
Let me know if you have any questions!
Thanks for stopping by!
