Fashion DIY Tutorial: Spice Up a Top with Fabric Remnants

This idea was inspired by a photo from an earlier collection by Vivienne Westwood. There I saw skinny jeans, which were provided on one side with colored dots. It looked really great, but I would not like to snip my jeans to pieces, so I took one of my (minimum 100) black tops. I am thrilled with the end result and have already cut some colored circles, which I will now be stuck to my jeans.
