The Margiela Sweater
As I’ve found this picture from the french Elle magazine last month, this Margiela sweater became a real obsession. For sure he’s a genius, we’re actually used to see only knitted wool, so this piece does really have something else.
I was so fascinated that this week I experiment it on a basic jersey tee -since it has something common with this one.
I didn’t say that the result will be THE SAME as on Margiela’s one, I’m just looking for the threads range effect.
First I choose a large men tee since it has to be comfortable. Ok, I didn’t cut the sleeves, I could have added an elastic strip on the waist. It’s a test! But it works, isn’t it, what do you think?
I wear it with a similar printed shirt underneath, which looks interesting.
Self-made thread tee,
La Fraise printed tee,
H&m jeans and scarf,
Might you have 10 mn during this weekend, you should definitely try! -just need a basic tee or, even better, a printed tee! and scissors.
Simply fold the tee as on the picture below,
Cut a range of fringes/ I advise you not to cut to far under the sleeves, you should stop at the shoulder line. (view last pic!)
Return the fabric on the right side and follow the lines on each direction (up and down).
So, I’m going for a little shopping tour right now, I wish you a wonderful weekend!
