With all the jewel-encrusted sportswear on the fall runways, it was hard not to get excited. Seriously — sweatpants, anoraks, leggings, and sneakers that shined in the sun? Sounds like a dream. Naturally, while everyone else was dreaming, we were scheming. Always up for a challenge, we experimented with techniques, scoured for the best materials (sew-on gems are amazing and not a pain to apply — who knew?!), and came out with a piece of clothing so awesome, we've worn it nearly every day since we made it. For our take on this fancy-pants cover-up, grab a handful of gems, a needle and thread, and the most comfy sweatshirt you can find. After all, trends may come and go, but we'll never grow tired of the happy combo of comfort and bling.
To make this epic embellishment with epic success, you'll need:
A soft pullover sweatshirt
Four sizes and shapes of the same colored gem
