I recently bought a bargain coat that I love, but when I wore it I realised that the shoulders of the coat looked too big. Power shoulders don’t always work for me so I decided to remove the shoulder pads . Naturally, this all turned into a blog post.
What you need: Some cotton, a needle and a pair of scissors.
1: Turn sleeves inside out and find the sleeve with the stitching that is on the outside like the picture below.
2: Use your scissor to unpick the stitches that are on the outside in order to make a hole in the sleeve.
3: Pull the jacket through the hole you just made until you reach the shoulder pad.
4: Use your scissor to cut out shoulder pad and repeat step 3 and then cut out other shoulder pad.
5: Push shoulders of jacket back in and then use your needle and cotton to sew hole closed.
Admittedly my before and after picture doesn’t show much difference but I can definitely feel the difference. I’m much more comfortable when I wear the jacket now.
