DIY Guide - draped skirt

DIY Guide - draped skirt
mandag, 19 september 2011 Her får I den længe ventede DIY guide til at binde en draperet nederdel, som jeg første gang viste i et indlæg fra Kreta. Jeg har brugt et gammelt tørklæde fra H&M, men har I ikke et tørklæde i den stil, kan man købe et langt stykke jersey stof i en stofbutik meget billigt. Mit tørklæde er 2,5 meter langt og 1,5 meter bredt og så har jeg foldet det på midten, så det kun er 75 cm bredt. Hvis I køber et stykke stof der er lidt tykkere, behøver I ikke folde det på midten, bare det ikke er gennemsigtig, of course :) Jeg håber at I kan lide guiden og at den er til at forstå, ellers spørger I bare. Here is a DIY guide on how to tie a draped skirt. Related:  designing and sewingModa Mujeres (women´s fashion)

how to sew a circular skirt My apple green bedsheet dress had a circular bottom. This is how you make one. 1. Measure your waistline, or where you want the waistline of your dress to fall. Divide by four. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. The final product would be worth all the trouble. And please please let me know if the instructions are clear. DIY Braided Bead Bracelet It’s been awhile since our last bracelet DIY. I don’t know about you, but our wrists have been begging for another colorful addition for months now. So after playing with some materials that were already on hand, we’ve created a tutorial for a braided bead bracelet, which is a not so distant cousin of the hex nut and wrap bracelet. Because honestly, you can never have too many . . . You’ll need: Cut the waxed linen cord into a 26″ and 19″ piece. Tie a knot about half an inch down from the loops. Start braiding the strands. Push the bead against the base of the braid, and cross the left strand over the middle. Keep a finger at the base of the braid, holding the beads in their place and keeping the braid tight. Finish the bracelet with another inch of braided cord, measuring it against the wrist. Thread on a two hole button – two strands through one hole and one strand through another. Trim the end. Your bracelet is finished! (all images by HonestlyWTF)

Urban Renewal by Mari Santos We're usually kinda "meh" about most T-shirt surgeries because we're just can't get into the hack'em, slash'em sartorial school of thought. Toronto-based Mari Santos, on the other hand, is such a genius with a pair of scissors we want to hitchhike across the border, kidnap her, head back south, and then set her to work against her will on the oversize T-shirts we seem to get for free by the pound. Except that it would probably be illegal. Which is kind of a bummer. Her ethos: "Taking something old, frumpy and ill fitting and making it into something new." More pictures below the fold.
