This last month my cousin from LA has been visiting Spain and I wanted to get her something that had a little Spanish personality and at the same time something I had made with my own hands… I immediately thought of a shawl and to make a fun DIY with this.
This is how I transformed a Seville black shawl embroidered with white roses on it to a wrap skirt. It’s easy to make and depending what top you combine it with you will get one look or another. Would you like to try it?

Hope you enjoy 😉 Continue reading →
