The Jelly Sweater

October 29th, 2011

The sun shines, the fall colors look amazing and it’s finally weekend!.. What else?

Wearing my new DIY jelly sweater ; I’ve worked that story out! Remember last post i’ve cut small scales in exercise covers, since then i’ve been hesitating long time : where and how applying them?

I finally sewed them on the shoulders of a fine nude sweater. I love the nude and red color together!

About this DIY/

Cut small scales (about 60 pc) from a colorful exercise book cover, and sew them one after the other, from the bottom to the top, on shoulders -or anything you want- of a tee or a fine sweater.

The result must look irregular, so don’t try it on straight lines like for example, an elastic belt…

  1. C’est trĂšs joli, lĂ©ger et surtout: c’est une idĂ©e fantastique! Bravo. Une petite question : tu cous les Ă©cailles Ă  la main? le plastique n’est pas trop rĂ©sistant? En tout cas c’est vraiment rĂ©ussi. 🙂

    • Merci Dorine! Oui l’inconvĂ©nient, c’est de devoir coudre les Ă©cailles Ă  la main, mais le plastique est trĂšs souple donc aucun problĂšme!
      A bientĂŽt! xx

    • @Alexa: you can hand wash it, cold water 30°c. And let it dry on a flat area, that’s what i did for my sweater, it works well! xx
