DIY Matthew Williamson pompom neckline

Translate the word "summer" in colors:
...
turquoise & yellow 
make it in sequins and pompoms and you have it all!

totally inspired by Matthew Williamson...
may I introduce you to:
the summer-must-have t-shirt!
{now I only need one thing: the SUMMER!!!}

GRAB YOUR SUPPLIES:



* I used a long sleeve t-shirt from Old Navy (last year's sales, 2 for 3$)
* pompom trim in yellow
* indigo blue large sequins
* gold faceted sequins (leftover from these shorts)
* acqua and turquoise seed beads and dark blue baguette beads
* matching thread, needle, scissors... yada yada

STEP BY STEP PHOTO TUTORIAL:
BUT ONE IMPORTANT NOTE BEFORE:
Make sure that the shirt you're using has a large neckline, or after sewing the trim and the beads on, you won't be able to get your head into!
A boat neck or scoop neck will work best.


* PIN the trim in place
* SEW the trim (only on the topside, so it won't get wobbly)
* SEQUINS first round: on the trim - one blue sequin, with one aqua bead on top
* SEQUINS second round: next to the trim - one gold sequin, with one turquoise bead on top
* BEADS next to the edge of the neckline: two turquoise beads - one baguette blue bead

Total time: about two hours!

Apparently, I wasn't the only one mesmerized by this MAtthew Williamson piece: check also  Desde Tenerife Con Amor's version HERE!
