I recently saw this picture of Olivia Palermo and fell in love with her feathered jacket.

I decided to make one of my own with a jacket I already had.

I got this from Target years ago and I absolutely love it still.

You will need:
An ostrich feather boa.
Scissors, needle, thread, and some pins.

Pin your boa in a snake like fashion down the center of the jacket (or, however you want really).

Then, make large stitches from the inside of the jacket out and around the middle of the boa...like so....

You can use the same color thread as the jacket.  I chose gray for demonstration purposes.

Then, you're done!  I feel all party ready with this snazzy number. 
I can't wait to wear it to a wedding I've been invited to this weekend!
