DIY ~ 3.1 Phillip Lim Inspired Lips Sweatshirt

Hey lovelies!  Today's DIY is such a fun one, and a bit tedious, but I swear I made it in about an hour, while watching the Patriots game this past Sunday. (Go Pats!)  It's inspired by this rhinestoned 3.1 Phillip Lim beauty, but done with sequins I had on hand.  {How to after the jump}

You'll need: A plain sweatshirt (this one like the one I used in myDIY leopard print sweatshirt came from Walmart for only $9), jewel glue, sequins.

I started by applying a sequin using jewel glue to mark the center of the upper lip first, and then I worked my way out from there.

Working about 2" at a time, apply glue and add sequins.  It really isn't as arduous a task as it seems :)

The upper lip and "teeth" (?) are done.  I wanted to keep it sort of messy looking, like the inspiration, so definitely don't go for perfection here.

Now on to the bottom lip!  Again, don't go for perfection.  I just eyeballed the design and haphazardly applied sequins.  Easy enough, right?

And done!  Following the glue's directions, I turned the shirt inside out and ironed the back of the design to set the glue.

So cute and casual, but will look great dressed up too!
