Sweaters? Pink Tartan, thrifted (and then DIY'd...) Leather pants? Vince
As a young man (4 years old?) aptly described it, this is my... balls shirt. I pinned a picture two years ago with giant pearls sewn on a sweater, and I said to myself 'I will do that one day...'. One day being over 600 days later but... I did it! And I took my time so that I actually liked the result and didn't waste my time on a DIY that I would be bored with in a week. Also, I thrifted this top quality Pink Tartan sweater and I would be really mad at myself if I ruined it with some weak DIY.
It took me three times to figure out exactly how I wanted to sew on the pearls. The pearls I first used were too big, the next time I didn't like how the pearls were secured and then I didn't like how the pearls cascaded down the sweater. It wasn't until I cut apart a vintage pearl necklace to sew on the smaller beads that I was happy with the result.
I was like the Goldilocks of pearl sweaters; it took me a few tries to get it 'just right'.
