There are plenty of sequin sweaters to buy – but I think updating an old one is worth the trouble. Since I already had everything I needed around, why bother buying a new one? The only downside is that all this DIY-ing left me with almost no plain clothes in my wardrobe. And I was already a print addict…
What you need:
- sweater you want to alter
- (gold) thread & needle
- small coin
- pencil or chalk
Set your sweater on a table and use the coin as a stencil to make a few circles. Do a running stitch all around, until you get a circle. You can leave it like this, or fill it with more stitches, if you like. I ended up with one full dot and two circles, especially because filling with stitches takes some time.
Next, stitch your sequins in a random fashion, for a confetti-like look. Rinse gently before wearing, so the pencil lines go out.
