One of the fashion items that I think is the most comfortable, feminine and is really easy to sew is the called kaftan or tunic. I especially like when it’s made in a delicate fabric like lace for a look even more feminine and light. Since this garment in itself takes a lot of fabric to make, a touch of Sheer makes it more beautiful. I have been inspired by these pictures that I found on Pinterest for our next DIY. What do you think? Would you like make a kaftan?

Hello DIY‘ers! I’m sorry I’ve been absent these days… I have been working on some projects and on my trip to London. But I’m back with more DIY‘s! Following our last post inspiration eyelet fabric Let’s make a skirt with this type of fabric. I have to admit that I’ve cheated a bit, I didn’t chose the a real eyelet fabric, this one is a stretch kind… but it looks like the original, right? This type of fabric will save us time and effort. Since we can skip the step of sewing a zipper and sewing darts!
Hello DIY’ers! How is your summer going so far? Here in Barcelona it’s waaaay hot! Today we have a post of inspiration with a material that I love! Is the eyelet fabric, also known as the embroidered cotton fabric (It has a thousand different names, What do you call it?)
Here you can see some different ways in which it can be applied for a summery look. One of my favorite is the skirt, with shorter lining so you can see the legs silhouette. So, can you already predict the next DIY?
Hello there! Did you like the selection of images of the last post inspiration bohemian shirt? Here you have a DIY tutorial for you to transform a basic shirt or tunic into a more boho chic style shirt. You can use a man’s shirt too. It’ll look great with your jeans or your shorts! Personally I think the pieces with a bohemian vibe are ideal for summer. What do you think?
It’s not a surprise that we continue wearing bohemian and hippy style clothing. Because of so many music festivals this season, these items are a MUST, no matter what other parallel trend is going on at the time.

Hello DIY‘ers! After a looooong wedding weekend in Burgos, I’m ready to show you more DIY‘s! (Check out some beautiful wedding location pics on my INSTAGRAM) Today I will show you how I transformed a winter overalls (an impulse buy, without thinking) in to a much more practical summer overalls. I mention this because when I saw these overalls in the store I fell in love and bought them without thinking that these aren’t a very practical garment when you have to take 30 layers of clothing off every time you have to go to the bathroom in winter. (you can imagine what I mean, right?) Apart from this small detail, the bloody overalls had no pockets! And let’s face it, overalls that don’t have pockets to put your hands and strike an interesting pose…ARE NOT COOL! So here is a little DIY transformation: DIY overalls with pockets.

For this year 2014, they are working with the challenge of promoting different topics each month, June was about DIY, and July is now about packing wisely for the holidays. I couldn’t resist the challenge of making a post showing you how we can pack more intelligent, efficient and light using our DIY’s of course!!… I hope you will find this post helpful for your summer vacations!
