We all know it, it’s always the same… Spring comes with a very changeable weather, and when we’re pretty sure it will only be sun and warmth, heavy rains begins and disrupt our mindset… For me, is the same every year. So we have to pull the coats out again… (BlaH!)
But this time it’s different! Let’s get inspired by these great XXL coats, most known as Boyfriend coats or oversize coats.

A shrug or bolero for this changing season is great… easy to put on and easy to take of! And if we do this in a fabric like this grey velvet or any other fabric with a little shine to it, we can use it both at night and by day. It’s cool to wear at work with jeans for a casual cool look and over any lacy top for those chilly spring night outs.
In this tutorial I will show you to sew a velvet shrug from 3 fabric rectangles. Ready to start this DIY? Let’s do it!

When I think of the styles in fashion that were used years ago and now are coming back again, the clothes of our grandmothers and our mothers that now come back as a super MUST, it’s amazing how fashion repeats. In particular I’ve always liked this, the Ruana. Very In years ago, and now is coming back. It’s a kind of a poncho-shawl that we can use over our coats or directly on our clothes to keep warm… It’s a very simple piece that adds a special touch to create a chic look. If you are always freezing like me, this is your style-DIY-solution! This DIYRuana is very easy to make, and it can also be for a special gift.

Join in and go to your nearest hardware store… I’m sure you will find a piece that will delight you too.
Hello DIY’ers! Following the last post “Inspiration marble print” I wanted to sign up for this trend too. I made a DIY painting a shirt with this marble motif… There are many ways and techniques to achieve this stone on fabric… Here you will see the one I used to make my shirt. I hope you like it, you can see more Marble print inspiration on our Pinterest.
I’ve been seeing this print trend some moths ago that I L-O-V-E! The marble print gives a sober yet modern touch to any look. This print can be combined with any color and I find it very chic. Marbleis a natural stone that always has a different drawing on the surface. There are many types and colors of marble. There will never be two alike. So I think it’s the perfect inspiration to make a DIY, because everyone can create their own marble print. What do you think about this trend?

Hello DIY’er! Have you already bought all the shop on sales? I found this basic black knit skirt for only 3€. I was unable to resist making a lingerie skirt that is so IN this season. It can also be made on a dress or top. It looks great combined with a thick knit sweater, as it balances the ” fine” and “fragile” lace with the thickness of the sweater… I love this contrast!. In this post you will see how easy it is to make a DIY Lingerie skirt! Do not let this season pass without wearing a garment inspired by lingerie 😉
Hello DIY’ers! You may have already seen through Facebook, Twitter o Instagram, that I’m spending these holydays with my family in my beloved island, Dominican Republic. I didn’t want to pass these days without showing a DIY Party top to wear on New Year’s eve (or other parties) With a classic strap top you can give a touch of fun color or even transparent fabric at the back. In this case I used a sequined top and neon yellow silk to give a bold touch. Surprise everyone with a ‘POP’ of color for this great night!
