Beaded Jersey Lariat DIY


A couple of years ago I retired this tunic. It was well worn but not worn out and shabby, so I didn't throw it away. I mean... pfff sane seamstress would do that!

It happens that I have a plain sweatshirt in a similar color that needed to be decorated so I turned to this jersey.

I cut 2 long strips of it and stretched them well so they curl up on the inside and no hemming is necessary. One strip is longer than the other. I beaded them at a certain distance and added caps on the ends. The rose  is sewn on the flounce and has a pin at the back so it serves as a brooch which I can choose where to pin on the strips. And that's it.
Easy, fast and quite cute.
