Farcere – Zoe Karssen Sweater

November 28, 2012

I’m a sucker for stylish items.

I, however, am not about to pay over $100 for a Zoe Karssen sweater with a cheeky saying.  I won’t even pay $60 for the ASOS version.

I will, however, use a little ingenuity and patience to create my own – and for under $30.

Enter Farcere, the new DIY series here on Hitha On The Go.  I’ll be showing you how to make your own versions of the latest on-trend items, without breaking the bank.  (Farcere means ‘to make’ in Latin, for those curious about the name of the series)

Kicking off the series is my version of the Zoe Karsssen sweater.  I chose the phrase “Hola” for a number of reasons – I spent 7 years learning Spanish in school, I’ve traveled to three Spanish-speaking places this year, and mostly because I think it’s such a friendly and happy saying.

    This is amazing!! Love the idea and the finished product – may have to try myself since
    I’m too cheap to pay for the $60 version too!! :)

    Coming out of the woodwork for my first comment here:

    LOVE this idea. Super cute and I think you styled it so well. Is that coated denim I spy? Any budget-friendly options on that?

    Keep up the lovely work :)

    So excited to see your future DIYs, because this is great! It looks so neat and perfect– so hard to do with painting by hand!

    So cute! I had done a similar tee (but in French) but haven’t gotten around to posting the actual DIY yet! Hope you swing by and check out our DIYs as well!

    Well, it`s nice. I recommend freezer paper for this action, you don`t need needles, trust me! See my blog and you`ll understand. Baj

    Love the sweater! Have you ever tried using freezer paper in place of pinning the shirt on the sweater? The wax adheres it just enough and then you can peel it off once your letters have dried. Could be a major time saver and avoid all of those pins!

    This is such a lovely way of creating quirky, customised clothing! This would make such a great Christmas present for someone. Lovely type too :)
