11 Easy And Cute DIY Choker Necklace Tutorials

Chokers, AKA necklaces that sit snugly around your neck rather than resting against your collar bones or cleavage, are edgy, cool, and make a pretty big statement. Chokers were huge in the ’90s and early 2000s – think the wiry tattoo style or black velvet versions with a little charm – but like so many other ~classy~ accessories from that time, they fell off our radar for a while. I’m kind of glad they’re back, though! If you want to jump on this style revival, you don’t need to drop a lot of money – you can take an afternoon and make your own DIY choker.

Let’s preface this with a little story.

Melmaria Designs DIY Anthropologie Inspired Top

I hope you like reading. Once upon a time, there was a girl who used Pinterest quite a lot. She loved browsing the travel, photography, DIY, food, and hair sections. One day, she found a very special pin. It was a photo of a woman standing with her back to the camera, wearing a top with a triangle insert of alternate fabric up the back. Anyway, I (okay, this story is about me) never got around to actually doing this DIY.

So it inspired me to create my own shirt refashion DIY, especially after seeing these two shirts from Anthropologie. Aren’t they cute? DIY Anthropologie Inspired Top – What You’ll Need: A button-down, either from your closet or Goodwill. Wash, dry, and iron your shirt. Next, pull the shirt apart a little until you have a triangle-shaped space. Turn your shirt inside-out and pin your lace triangle to the reverse side of the shirt, lining up the lower edges evenly. Trim the lace edges and voila! DIY FRIDAY: ADDING SLEEVES TO A SLEEVELESS DRESS (REFASHION TUTORIAL) These weeks are flying by -- somehow it's time for another round of DIY Friday!


Lulu*s sent me this dress a few months ago, and although I totally loved it, I don't wear sleeveless tops, so it was super annoying to have to wear a jacket or a sweater over it all the time. We've been having a crazy heat wave here as well, so layers were completely out of the question. In an amazing stroke of good luck, I found a similar printed chiffon fabric at the LA fabric district, so I brought it home, lined it with some lightweight white cotton, and whipped up some sleeves for this dress. Now it's the perfect dress -- this silhouette is maybe my favorite ever for my body. So today I want to show you have to make a simple sleeve to add to a sleeveless dress -- it's so easy! DIY FRIDAY: WHITE EYELET DRESS REFASHION. During the summer, I pretty much live in dresses and skirts.


The problem is that most of the dresses in retail that are my style are just too short for me. But I've discovered an awesome little refashioning trick for dresses that are too short. It doesn't work for every dress, but I've done it to a ton of different dresses and and I love it. Here's the trick to adding length. Size up. Once you've sized up enough to get enough length, then comes the refashioning part -- because most likely the neckline, sleeves, waist, and darts now do not fit you.
