Here we go with another DIY! This isn't actually what I planned to do with a sweatshirt, but I wanted to do something with polka dot, and I decided to go for it this week. However there are a few more projects with sweatshirts on my "DIY Ideas Excel sheet", where I note all the ideas that come up to my mind. They're now on standby, but I'll probably make them before the summer.
The reason why I love sweatshirts is because they're much easier to customize than a knitted sweater and they're also great for the period between seasons. I know the technique is not going to surprise you guys, because it's the same I used for my cupcake sweatshirt last year (tutorial here, and more pictures here). First I thought of making the dots with leather, but I couldn't bear with the thought of cutting a large amount of circles and making them perfectly rounded.
I think that sequins provide a cool sport-deluxe effect that I love. It's like some kind of contrast between formal and informal. If you are wondering if the sequins fall off, you should know that I did my cupcake sweatshirt last year and it's still perfect. Although I always wash it with care (backwards and hand wash). Here's the video!!
Hope you guys liked this. If you just want to make a subtle DIY you can just apply these polka dots just on the sleeves. That would also look son nice and will be faster to make.
