A CLASSIC CUT SWEATSHIRT in a colour of your choosing, laboriously hand customised with vintage and recycled fabric applique panels, an ornate, costume jewellery inspired print and 2d printed ‘jewels’.
This garment has a standard, unisex sweatshirt shape with a crew neck and broad shoulders/set-in-sleeves. The fabric is relatively thick with a brushed fleece feel inside. Most excitingly, it is available in a wide range of colours! Check the multiple product images for a full colour guide.
Select up to THREE print colours. These will be used for the base print, which is pressed direct to the garment, and for the printed, fabric ‘jewels’ which are cut out by hand and stitched onto the garment after to give a textural finish to the embellishment.
Before work begins on your garment you will receive a short consultation via email or text including a photo of the selected print colours and proposed patterned fabrics.
A tip for picking print colours
I recommend including SOME texture, whether you pick a glitter, mirror OR flock for one of your print colours, adding some surface variety to the printed areas generally looks more pleasing than 2-3 flat colours. Please note – once ordered garment styles and colours are fixed but we will FINALISE your print colour choices at the consultation stage. Please get in touch if you have any questions you might have before ordering
VINTAGE AND SECONDHAND FABRIC
The vintage and recycled fabrics used in my designs are sourced from local charity shops, brocantes in France and via kind donations from fellow makers, looking to recycle their unwanted textile offcuts. All fabrics are machine washed before being repurposed.
Each print is decorated with secondhand or vintage fabric applique panels. These are cut out by hand and machine stitched into place. A large and ornate costume jewellery inspired vinyl print is pressed over the applique panels before being further adorned with 2d, vinyl printed, fabric ‘jewels’.
Every garment is embellished to order. There will be a 3 week turn around time on this item
Please note, I do not accept returns on custom made items.

Caring for your Embellished Sweatshirt
Embellished sweatshirts are machine washable at 30 degrees. In order to keep the textural pieces of your embellishment in good condition a gentle cycle is recommended.
Shake out after washing and allow to dry naturally on a clothes rack or washing line.
Please DO NOT tumble dry or iron directly over the print.
