Brace yourself with lace! Valentino’s F/W 2011 Collection displayed smokey hues of lace mixed with chunky knits, which our friends at WhoWhatWear and I thought needed to be DIY’ed ASAP. Loose yourself in a lovely-cozy-cool- creation that’s perfect for the cold weather and any winter wonderland.
To create: sketch and cut out a pattern onto plain paper, which will be used to block out the center area of the sweater. Remember to get creative with the shape of your pattern. The pattern should be placed approximately 2-3 inches below the neckline and approximately 5 inches from the bottom of the sweater. Cover the center portion surface of your sweater with the lace, pin the pattern over top the lace. Follow the pattern, and trim lace. Use a foam brush to apply a thin layer of fabric glue on the sweater where you want the lace to adhere. Pat the lace down on the sweater and wait till completely dry to trim any excess lace.
