For the last few weeks I have been working on this sequin DIY cardigan. It was originally entirely purple so I changed the buttons and added pink, purple, silver and white sequins to the front to give it a new look. Ever since my mother in law and my sister introduced me to the idea of adding sequins to cardigans I have been experimenting and coming up with many ideas of how to customise cardigans by adding pearls, bows, buttons, sequins and flowers. This is the first one that I completed but I have a few more which are currently in progress. Also, I have drawn inspiration from the beautiful Alannah Hill cardigans that I often see at the shops. Working across the road from an Alannah Hill store, I am often tempted by the $100+ cardigans that I see while browsing during my lunch break. Lately I thought that as an alternative I could customise my own designs. I also realised just how much the price of an item increases simply because it has some sparkly!
Juliette likes my creation. She was playing with the sequins as I attempted to take pictures.
I tried my hardest I make this a good quality item and sew the sequins on tightly but even so, I will be a little scared to wash it for the first time.
