I loved this sweater the moment I saw it.
It’s the J Crew Chandelier Sweater, and it comes at a price of $168. I purchased this plain grey sweater, and then decided I didn’t really like it. It was just too boring.
And it was the perfect backdrop to try and recreate the chandelier sweater. I know I am not the first and I will not be the last. But I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
I went to JoAnn’s and picked out two different sizes of jewels. I really liked the bigger jewels on the original J Crew sweater, but I didn’t have any luck finding jewels that big. If you had more time to look around, or felt confident ordering jewels from the internet you could probably get a closer match. In the end I think it works out good for me. You still get the idea of the original. Plus my kids love to pull on them, so I was glad they are a little smaller and I am crossing my fingers that I sewed them on well!
My new sweater made an appearance at book club.
Yeah for good friends, books, wine, and a new jeweled sweater!
