I love this embellished sweater, such an easy way to makeover something so simple. It’s sweet and graphic and perfect for this much colder weather we are getting.
I’ve spoken before about DIY blogs and their ability to pick up on trends before I see them in stores. I Spy DIY is one of my favourite blogs, and she is ahead of the pack when it comes to this! Right now Embellished Sweaters are everywhere. I’m pretty much in love with that jacket in the first picture, but the ISD version is also amazing. Did I mention the easiness of creating this… which means you can knock up a couple for each day of the week!
I follow Trinkets In Bloom on Facebook and get so excited every time she posts a new DIY! She makes truly amazing stuff, and because I have a slight obsession with owls I kinda freaked out when I saw the preview of this sweater! Add in the sparkle of the bugle beads and I’m sold. It’s a little too hot to wear a sweater right now but I plan on doing this with a tshirt.
Studded Sweater | Lace Is The Way
Here is a super cool and super simple DIY for a Sunday! All you need is some giant studs and a plain sweater. The giant studs have quite an impact on this top. A great way to update a wardrobe staple without spending a mint!
Jelly Sweater | Virginie Peny
The colder weather is coming through now (though tomorrow it’s hot, go figure!) and I’ve discovered that I have no jumpers (sweaters!) but lots of cardigans. Kmart has some super cheap jumpers, but they’re pretty plain and boring. I loved this jumper and thought that the fabric looked amazing… to discover that it’s not fabric but the coloured plastic that comes from the cover of notebooks! I’m not sure how it would go through the wash but you could hand wash it.
Varsity Cardigan | Adventures In Dressmaking
The more I think of it, the more I realise that my fashion style is very preppy! Haha! So this jacket really made me excited. I would probably pair this with a floral skirt and flats. And I’ve got an old lemon jumper I don’t wear anymore that would be perfect!
Contrast Sheer Sleeve Sweater | Runway DIY
I love the way Runway DIY creates very easy DIY versions of the current Runway styles. This kind of craft is great because you can use all the different parts of your two tops. Once you’ve created the sweater, use the sleeves of the jumper for arm or leg warmers, then take the body of your sheer shirt and hem where you’ve cut off the arms to have a pretty sleeveless shirt. You’ve then got three new pieces!
Sparkly Sweater | Such Pretty Things
I always look at the pretty jewels and things in the craft stores but don’t know what to do with them, but now I do! This is a truly stunning cardigan, and so easy to make. I have a few plain cardigans that would benefit from a makeover like this. It’s very Kate Spade-esque don’t you think?!
Leg Warmers & Cowl Neck Scarf From A Sweater | Megan Nielsen
Oh yes, I also found Megan Nielsen’s site today! All her stuff is so easy to do. In fact, it’s quarter past ten at the moment but I think I’m going to make that cowl neck scarf from a yellow jumper I haven’t worn in forever to wear into the city tomorrow! That’s right, I’m going into the city tomorrow again, this time with my sister and gorgeous niece Mia. And I think I’m going to make those leg warmers too. And then use the scrap parts to make the bow necklace I featured a while ago. In fact, this craft is like cooking in war time - use all parts of the jumper! Sorry, that might be a weird analogy. It is quarter past ten after all!
Spring Sweater Refashion | Tater Tots & Jello
When I saw this DIY I was like - yes! I feel the same way about scarves!
This refashion also uses a scarf. This is the problem — I buy scarves because I think they are so adorable but then I never feel like I know how to wear them. Or I feel too self-conscious to wear them.
I always buy the most beautiful scarves and then they sit lovingly in my wardrobe. Darn. They just never seem to look right. So adding them to a cardigan means I get to wear them and wear a cardigan. Win-win!
