Sweatshirt and Stripes





Sweatershirt-DIYed (similar, similar) | Dress worn as skirt-Talbots, thrifted (similar, similar, similar) | Wedges-Payless (similar, similar) | Necklace-won (similar) | Bracelets-DIYed 

Even though this was the most time intensive and expensive craft project I've done lately, I am the most pleased with how this sweatshirt turned out. The idea came to me when I was debating how to sew on rhinestones to the sweater I embellished earlier. A collar, polka dots, then finally diagonal lines popped into my head. Sewing on that many rhinestones to make lines didn't really excite me so I found some E6000 glue and gems at Walmart. Three different Walmarts and 7 packs of gems later and I was finally done. The tutorial will be up tomorrow!

  14. I remember this dress. What I like about the look is the blue sweater on it. I can only think of white to style it, which is quite boring compared to the blue sweater.
