DIY Kenzo Inspired Sweatshirt

My love for crewneck sweatshirts is pretty deep.  I find them to be very convenient and extremely cozy.  Also, they are the first thing I look for when shopping at a thrift store.  With that being said, I was overjoyed to see Harper’s BAZAAR devote an entire section to sweatshirts in their “Street Style Trend Report: Spring 2013” report.  Amongst trends such as sheer fabrics, animal prints, the color blue, white heels, motorcycle jackets and, Miu Miu and Prada, “Sweat Chic” is the first trend to appear in the slideshow.  Of course I loved just about every sweatshirt they showed.  However, this Kenzo tiger sweatshirt stuck with me the most.  I had seen that particular sweatshirt once or twice before, but never paid much of any attention to it.  After doing a little research, I came to the conclusion that spending $500+ on a sweatshirt was just a bit farfetched for me and that is when I opted to make my own.  Besides, the sweatshirt is sold out everywhere!
