this was my DIY inspiration
My grandmother was a dress maker, she was the one who made my dresses every time I get to join any beauty contest when I was still young. From cute skirts to long gowns my grandmother has been an epitome of vintage style and fashion for me. Sad to say my mother was not able to showcase her own talent towards making things not until I reached college, if my mom has passed that creativity to me, I am pretty sure that I have the hands of a DIY goddess. I have been inspired to make my DIY for the third time.
The first was with a flower pin, second was with the studs and now I just made something out from an old shirt I have in my closet. I have been religiously looking at these lovable ladies who makes wonderful pieces into reality. From Mel who has encourage me to do more DIY, from Philip and Meream who are local bloggers that I look up to when it comest to creativity and yes I found a new site that caters to this wonderful creations. I am just crazy over Kirsten’s DIY site and I am not yet done reading her back entries. So it made me thinking, if I have the extra time doing and developing something online, I can actually do more by making something from an old item. And that is the beginning of this fringed top shirt.
Last Saturday when King and I stopped at Topshop I saw this fringed cropped top and fell in love with it. King got his disapproving looks towards the top, he said that why would I buy something that looks like a rag. Hahhahaha I was sad but he has a point though, I remembered during high school that I joined a dance contest and our costumes were handmade white shirt that were cropped like the ones in Topshop. So a great idea came into mind, I remembered I still have my old jersey top hidden somewhere in my closet and a pair of scissors will help me achieve this project without sewing anything. I think this is the most simplest DIY ever and anyone can make something like this. All you need is an old colorful top, a scissor and some markers to mark on what length you want the fringes to start. Since cropped tops are back, this is the most fab way to look good without showing much skin.
all you need is an old jersey top with a colorful print and a piece of scissor 🙂 markers for the exact length of the fringes.
cut in the middle first to make sure you know the proportions, just make small lengths of fringes.
the finish product 🙂
After doing this project, I had to take a photo of me and I was able to feel the hippie vibe with the shirt so I put on some necklace and rings and there you go. The hippie side of me, this is what I look like with curly, dry hair hahahhaah for me that is not my best look, I don’t look good with curly hair it makes my round face go bigger, think like a basketball 🙂
see I told you, think of BASKETBALL hahahhha!!!! this hair style does not compliment my round face BOO!!!!
anyways POSITIVE vibes everyone…I have some exciting news for Elle Veztida and The Queens.
