DIY LACE-UP FRONT SWEATER





 Chill at the morning and humid during day i wonder is it fall yet?? Transitional dressing has always been tough task for me until recently when i DIY-ed  this perfect lace up sweater. LACE-UP seen on countless S/S 15 runways, in variety of accessories, silhouettes, fabrics- from work-appropriate to casual day-out, i show you easy way to make one by yourself and add this to your casual wardrobe. Scroll down to see how  ~



                                                     
                 YOU WILL NEED : 
  • Turtle Neck Sweater
  •  Lace 
  • Pins
  • Measuring Tape
  • Scissor

 Measure at the centre front till where you want the cut out to start and end, i went down till bust line.


 Next cut along the line, fold them under to create a V- neck and pin!


 Cut small sections from the lace roll as shown above.


Decide where you want to start lacing, measure and divide the section. I placed the loops spacing 2 inch. Fold the lace into half to form loop and pin them.


Start sewing at the edge, i opted stitching which would secure the loops better than fabric glue.


 I
Now the loops are in place, fig.1 i placed the lace just to analyse how to start lacing. Fig. 2 start creating cross-cross through the loops either from the top or bottom as you desire.



Voila!  It hardly took an hour to make this and i also made lace-up flats a while ago. Definitely loving the 70's vibe, you can also add these lace detailing to you unworn dress or shirt and invigorate it.
