This season we've been loving demin mixed with lace! We decided to give this trend a try with a cute DIY top! Here's how... 1. Supplies: Denim or chambray button up shirt, lace, scissors, sewing machine, sewing pins. 2. First, cut out the back of the shirt.
My blog is all about crafting, sewing, creating and inspiring, but mostly sewing. I have a tendency to fall in love with clothes but not their prices. So one of my hobbies is pouring over pictures of name brand clothes and then coming up with a way to recreate them. I started my blog when I was working part time and the mom of a new baby, desperately needing a new way to express my creative side. I’m now home full time with my two-year-old and excitedly looking forward to a new baby this October.
Cotton is a great fabric to start sewing with! It's one of the easiest fabrics to sew and care for. It's also easy to find in beautiful colors and patterns! I picked up this plaid fabric last summer at a garage sale. You'll need a yard to 1.5 yards of fabric to start with. How to measure and cut: Width- Take half of your hip measurement (measure around the fullest part of your hips and then divide by two) then add 5-8 inches.

How romantic. My friend and I went to the arthall in Rotterdam and saw an exhibition called ICON DRESSED designed by Annette Meyer, each garment was made of paper and represented a decade of women clothing from the 1800's till now. I was amazed by a garment which looked exactly like the dress Keira Knightley wore in Pride & Prejudice, I went home got into a romantic state of mind, converted that into creativity and made this.
