Be creative, bead it up!

Ph | me

WEEKS ago I fell in love with this H&M sheer top. Short sleeves, good material and a collar full of little beads. Simple but cute. Before my falling in love with this top, I had come across some articles saying how you could easily pimp up your collar. So... I decided then that spending my money on something I could make myself (without spending as much) would be ridiculous and bought a plain white sheer top (twenty euro's!) and a small bag of silver beads (not even two euro's if I recall) and started sewing. I have to admit, it took some time and patience (mainly patience) but it saved me twenty euro's! Just go up and down the collar with a long thread, and one by one add a bead. I am pretty pleased myself! What do you think, did it work out well? 

TIP: If you are not an advanced seamstress don't flip the collar over anymore, because that is not a really pretty picture. 'A spider's web of threads' describes the look of this perfectly haha.
