DIY: Wang Sweater



Thank you to Behind The Seams for posting a step by step diy guide to the Alexander Wang Sweater. You can click here to view the instructions.

I didn’t want my cutouts to be too sheer so I lined it with a black stretch mesh that can be found in the dancewear fabric section. I was really tempted to try lace; maybe next time. I had a little trouble doing this project. My internet didn’t work so I guessed as to wear the cut outs were. I ended up cutting two big holes right around each boob ugghhh. I had to end up using the back as the front. But then the neck was so high I thought I’d cut a little bit off. Turns out it was a bit too much and it is now a boatneck/off the shoulder style; not a look I was going for grrrrrr. Dont love it, but dont hate it.

cutting off the neck gives a good slouch, great work on the cutoffs! actually looks quite natural, its like a wearble earthly version of see-through Wang!
