DIY Designer Sweatshirt That Will Save You A Ton Of Dough!

diy rag and bone sweatshirt

Create your own designer sweatshirt from Rag & Bone! Last month, I was shopping with my sister Patti in Bloomingdale’s and walked past an adorable sweatshirt that was covered in small white paint splashes. I backtracked to take a closer look at it and fell in love with it. I immediately grabbed the price ticket and almost lost my breath!

The sweatshirt itself was a plain ordinary run of the mill one. Nothing special about it, except for the splashes of paint scattered about. Now, I’ve been known to splurge on designer clothes at whim before, but for some reason when I saw the price, and how ordinary the sweatshirt was I said no way!

Price Ticket

Yes, you saw that correctly! $255.00 bucks…for a sweatshirt! The entire line of Rag and Bone clothes are off the hook expensive.

Here are some pics of what it looked like.

Cute right? After some reflection, I knew I could make this myself and get close enough. So I did! Here’s my version. I’m going to be making another one soon. Next time, I’m going to buy a smaller black or olive sweatshirt similar to the Rag and Bone one. I wanted to try a test first, so I grabbed a plain old sweatshirt I had lying around.

Martha Stewart Pearl Paint

I was going to use an eye-dropper to drop the paint onto the sweatshirt, but I decided to use a Q-Tip instead. I noticed their paint drops were uneven, and I wanted to get that same looks. The Q-Tip worked out best. This paint is fabric safe too!

Adding the Paint Dots

 

I tried to follow the same pattern as they did use paint drop clusters and random sizes. You may have to go back over a dot to make sure good paint coverage.

Mine is below – I think the point of the project here was well made. You can find any sweatshirt and recreate this yourself! I will totally wear the one I made, but I am going to make another one too! I love wearing sweatshirts this time of year and get so bored with the plain ordinary ones I see sold. Point being, you may not always be able to afford a sweatshirt for $255.00, but you can sure try to make one (that looks like it) yourself!
