Hello DIY‘ers, I guess that like me you are probably looking for ideas and inspiration for autumn DIY looks. Personally I love the pieces that look like lingerie with a nice thick sweater or cardigan for this season.
I decided to recycle my old satin pajama pants, turning them into these sports shorts with lace trimmings. Now they look like lingerie shorts, right? If you want to see more on sports shorts inpiración before deciding on a style, be sure to see my previous post with some ideas HERE.
One of the Must pieces of this past summer was the sports shorts or running shorts. This very 80′s aerobic/sports fashion garment came roaring back this summer 2014… but it seems its persisting on to this fall fashion trends. Personally I like the cut and how comfortable they are. These loved-hated shorts that we always visualize in pastel or neon color (because of the decade that they reminds us), are now back in more modern materials such as leather or sequined fabric or prints. Here is a small selection of some of my favorites. This will help us inspire us for our next DIY. Whitch one is your favorite? Continue reading →
Hello DIY‘ers! Do you remember the post from last week “Inspiration lace tunics and kaftans“? Well today I will show you how easy it is to make one yourself. It’s a very simple version of how to sew a kaftan or tunic. You can use it as a dress or a coverup for the beach or the pool.
Because I’m not ready to dismiss the good weather and the sunshine… with this post I dedicate one last goodbye to Summer’s 2014! I hope you had a great summer too and you enjoy this tutorial!! Continue reading →
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?

In this tutorial, following the inspiration eyelet post we are going to make a simple but cool customization for our basic, bland and boring T shirt we all have. I used the same knitted eyelet fabric I used in the DIY skirt tutorial. Ready? Let’s get to work!
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?
