DIY J.Crew Inspired Bow Sweater || #blogmas Day 3

There is something about bows and frills – they are so feminine and chic. Only if you are the kind of a person you has a love affair with them can understand. That’s exactly what I felt when I saw this post by Julia where she carried this cute-chic sweater in a very smart way. I immediately clicked on the shop this post link, only to look at the hefty price tag. Well its not that expensive either. But the DIY instinct immediately conquered over my mind and I thought, hmmmm this is quite easy to achieve. And then began the extensive search for the right kind of knit wear.

Here’s what you’ll need : 

Semi High Crew Neck Knit Sweater (exact same here, similar ones here and here)
Black Ribbon (from Michaels)
Pair Of Scissors
And some serious bow making skills

The beauty about this DIY is you can pick any colored sweater that brings out the sparkle in your eye.
This sweater here had an exact same vibe as the J.crew’s one so I went with this. Then came the tricky part, how to make the right kind of double looped bow. That’s when I began the comprihensive research on how to make double-looped bow, and this video right here, was the perfect solution for making the J.Crew “inspired”  bow. Then what, I made the bow hot glued gunned it to the sweater and tada you have your very own J.Crew Bow sweater in your choice of color and in a fraction of a price.

I hope this inspired you and if you are someone like me who loves bow’s then happy bow-ing your sweaters 😉
