DIY Embellished Army Shirt

I recently shared with you this inspo post on Ethnic Embellished Jackets, and promised you a follow-up DIY... and here it is. I would have ideally liked to use a jacket but I already had this shirt hanging up in my wardrobe and it wasn't really getting any wear so wanted to utilise this. The shirt is quite thick so makes an ideal lightweight jacket for heading into the winter months. I found the Kuchi Afghan belt on Ebay and have wanted to use it for some time, but never found the perfect project for it. After some gorgeous ethnic jackets popped up on my Pinterest feed I thought I could combine the two, influenced from the images I have seen on there and on my recent Inspiration Post. I'm really happy with the way it turned out and you could easily adopt this idea to any shirt, jacket or coat that you already have and could use a multitude of textiles and embellished pieces to create a similar effect.
 All I did was work out where I wanted to put the beaded piece and simply hand-sewed it in place.
