Everywhere on the streets of New York, London, Milan and Paris, Fashion Weeks F/W 2013-14's street stylers are crazily obsessed with beanies. The last F/W fashion weeks see the extraordinary emerging trend of the dramatic neon beanies. This season we also love the slouchy knit, the cat ear, then there are the Jil Sander veiled beanies.
JS's veiled beanies has got me falling madly in love at first sight with with its bold yet elegant look. And as I was wandering around reading different posts on bloglovin', I accidentally came across this amazing, detailed and surprisingly easy DIY on the iconic Jil Sander veiled beanies and I just have to share it with you guys. Seriously, owning your own breathtaking veiled beanie doesn't get any easier than this!
Spread the netting out lengthwise. Place the beanie in the center of the netting, offset by about 3 inches. Fold the two ends towards the center.
Thread the embroidery thread through the needle and make a double knot at the end. Overlap the two sides of netting and sew them to the beanie with a single stitch. (I’m using white thread here so you can see the stitches).
Continue the stitch by folding down one side in half and sewing the edge to the beanie. Repeat the same step on the other side.
Now fold over both sides in half again, to the same center point. Sew the edges to the beanie with another stitch. Double knot the thread from the inside and trim.
Turn the beanie over, find the middle point, and sew the bottom edge of the netting to the beanie with a single stitch. Double knot and trim. Make a 1.5″ fold.
Put the beanie on and then peel the netting down over your face. Voila, you’ve been veiled!
