Off the Shoulder Top and Maxi Skirt

(similar here)Watch: Daniel Wellington c/o Summer is almost over, and I had to make sure I rocked this off the shoulder top and maxi skirt outfit before the season officially ends! I’m so obsessed with this Missguided off the shoulder top (or any off the shoulder top/dress for a matter of fact). It’s flirty and sexy with super pretty and delicate lace crochet details. Just note that only the front of the top is lined so the back is semi-sheer. I love how crop tops look with high-waisted bottoms so it was a match made in heaven when I found this Topshop floral maxi skirt. The final touch to this summer outfit is this gorgeous Pietro Olivia fringe bag.

Blogshops sell them for around 20-30 bucks and forever21 carries them for 30-50 :( In the US, kimonos only cost half that price. Plus, these kimonos are made of chiffon, not silk, so I don't see why they need to be so pricey. The crafter in me then scoured the Internet for a tutorial on how to make a kimono! I used a scarf from forever 21, which you can get in US stores for 8-10 bucks. The good thing about these forever21 scarves is that they are square shaped, and quite huge, so they are in quite a perfect size. 1. 2. 3. 4. 7. Easy DIY: scarf to kimono-esque cardigan.

I’ll be the first to admit that invisible zippers have been the bane of my life for a long while now.

Inserting an invisible zipper: the definitive tutorial

Having taught myself to sew, I was never showed how to insert a zipper, invisible or otherwise, so my first attempts were blind stabs in the dark. Hell, I didn’t even have an invisible zipper foot! Needless to say, I ruined many a zipper and many a garment; and my sewing machine barely walked away with its life.
