My friend Raquel holds a yearly Christmas treat exchange and always requests that attendees sport some specific Christmas attire. Last year was aprons (mine was awesome but I got sick the day of and ended up staying home) and this year was Christmas sweaters.
I am not really a Christmas sweater person. Even to be funny. I'm lame that way.
But last week I happened to stumble across this Phillip Lim sweater and thought, "You know...I'd maybe wear that."
Anyway, I knew I could DIY it. I still had some leftover gray jersey from the tunic from this post and I've always got freezer paper and fabric paint on hand. I found a simple reindeer graphic and did a not-as-quick-as-I-would-have-liked freezer paper stencil (for future reference: large stencils should be done in pieces if you value your sanity).
I really love the end result. I've worn it a few times already and I'm kind of thinking maybe I need a few more...
