DIY: 3.1 Phillip Lim Sleeveless Studded Sweatshirt

Hey Everybody! I thought I would bring you a DIY project! Now i'm usually not the DIY type, I'd rather just go out and buy something than to make it (patience is a virtue lol). However when I spotted this 3.1 Phillip Lim studded sweatshirt I thought, "I could make this" and with that price tag, I know I would have to make it if I wanted it lol.

I just love how they paired it with the pastel jeans. I would add my Pastel Yellow Cap Toe pumps to complete the Spring ready look!

All you would need is an old sweatshirt (dad's, boyfriend's, Thrift or Walmart), cut the sleeves off and add some dome studs (ebay) and Voila! Phillip Lim for under 10 bucks!

Will any of you be attempting this? Also let me know of any DIY projects that you want to work on. I want to get more into DIY and be a little more crafty.


  1. I would love to adorn some shoes with rhinestones or broken glass

  2. This is too cute! I think I may have to try this.. although Im not too crafty so who knows how it will turn out lol. My first DIY project will be distressed denim shorts! Hopefully I wont hurt myself lol...

  3. I think that is a cute shirt, I would pick a thinner material like a Tshirt as I think the sweatshirt might be a bit too heavy. Perhaps a grey Tshirt or tank top would work. how do you get the studs on there? Do you need a special studding tool or do you hammer them? I would love to attempt this but I have no clue about studding fabric. I guess I could just good it!! Thanks for the idea though!!


    1. You're right! I have an old gap sweat shirt that is super thin that I am going to try it on! There are a ton of studding vids on youtube :)

  4. This is really cute! I wouldn't mind getting into some DIY projects myself (as long as it doesn't require sewing). LOL

  5. this is a great look! Might actually give this diy a try... it looks like one i might be able to actually do!
