Summer DIY project: giving an old white shirt a new life via DIY shibori dyeing project. This time, I used itajime style (square accordion folding technique), and I learned some things I’d like to share! Photos by Mira Musank and Christian Hadidjaja.
My first attempt at DIY Leisure Wear involves a dark green high-low rectangle top with box pleat details with matching elastic waist pants, plus a pair of furry slippers. This DIY project marked my first time making pants! Photos by Christian Hadidjaja.
A refashioning project that’s long overdue. It’s good to see DIY Square on a Tee alive and rocking! It’s a simple use of a pretty fabric sample I got from Fabmo.
Beautifying a hardly worn silk blouse by hand stitching lace appliques (cut out of lace remnants) on it, inspired by a pink dress shirt Carrie Brownstein wore on recent “Late Night” TV appearance.
This is perhaps the tipping point for my love of DIY projects. Making simple kaftan scarf top with kimono sleeves from an old H&M scarf was such a fun experience. I couldn’t believe I almost throw this barely-used scarf away; it has such a pretty flower print and colors!
