Nothing says holiday like sequins! Sequined sweaters are great for the holidays when they can be donned at a party or shopping for gifts in a pair of jeans. I LOVE sequin sweaters, but only when they are ever so slightly adorned and give a vintage feel; not in that bedazzled kind of way! And I’m not the only one who adores les sequins, designers love working with sequins too and as usual their creations result in a designer price tag, ouch. But it doesn’t have to be that way!
Here’s a simple and cheap get the look How-To:
Sequined Sweater How- To
What you need:
- Sweater from Goodwill
- Beaded and or sequined trim appliques, how many depends on where you’ll place them ( two if placing on shoulders…at least 4 if working around the collar!)
- Needle and thread(color of sweater)
- If you need to, cut the appliques to the size and shape you would like.
- Pin them on to the area you want to sequinfy
- Sew around the edges
- Voila, done!
The possibilities are endless as to where you can wear this lovely sweater. Christmas party at the office? Over a great cocktail dress for a Hanukkah party? Or grabbing Starbucks in the midst of your shopping rut?!
