step 2

Layout your necklace on your dress and decide where you want to place it.

Cut off any extra from your necklace that you don’t want.DIY Rhinestone Swing Dress Cutting Necklace

You don’t want to sew your necklace all the way around, because this dress is a pullover, if you sew it all the way around the neck won’t stretch and you won’t be able to get it on. So leave some space for stretching.

step 3

Using your needle and thread, sew your necklace around the neckline of your dress.

This dress tends to be very fitted across the shoulders, so when you order yours be sure to order a size up.

I received this dress courtesy of boohoo to customize in a fun DIY. This is such a fun style and I love the classic simplicity of it. That’s why I chose to make a simple neckline embellishment on it. By adding a bit of colorful sparkle to the neckline you can dress it up with heels or down with boots and a jean jacket.
