Try this simple embellishment for any new or old sweater.
This is the easiest-in-the-world DIY project. Trust me.
I bought a plain white sweater at Target but I needed to jazz it up a bit Princess Rosebud-style ‘cos it was just a tad too dull and ordinary for a Princess, ya know?
I stripped off (and saved) the plain buttons…
AND just noticed the uneven ribbing on the bottom.
Ya get what ya pay for, right?
…and replaced them with inexpensive sparkly rhinestone ones.
I added a special bead button at the bottom for a little extra texture and shine.
Some of the button holes were a bit larger than the new buttons;
all it took was a few stitches to make it fit nice and snug.
The finished product, although not a very good pic.
Do you have any idea how hard it is to photograph white?
Quite the challenge for a non-pro to capture the sparkle, too…
Now I have a sweater worthy of fashionista royalty.
I hope you can find a tired old sweater in your closet and bring it back to life, too!
