DIY | How To Personalise Your Military Coat On A Budget

Military coat



If you’re a fashionista, I’m sure you’ve come across  maxi military coats. Showcased at the London fashion show, they seem to be making a comeback.  High-end and high-street brands can be a bit pricey and if you’re on a tight budget like me (I blame all the Christmas shopping), you might not want to spend £150-200 for a coat right now.

No need to fret girls, I have got you covered and came up with the idea to simply make my own.


How To Personalise Your Military Coat

Here is what you need:

✓ Military coat – I got mine from Primark for £30

✓ Iron-on patches – I got mine from H&M for £6

✓ Iron

Before you start ironing the patches on, lay them out on your coat to see where you would like them. I can recommend putting the coat on because it’ll make it easier for you to see where to place them.

Plug in your iron and get a clean dish towel to prevent the patches sticking to your iron.

Press down the iron for approximately 30 seconds. It’s best to read the instructions that come with the patches.

Repeat the process until you’ve ironed-on every single patch and let your coat cool down.  That’s it pretty much. Easy peasy right?
