I have been feeling the need to revamp my wardrobe, but my poor pocketbook is having a dryspell. What to do? What to do? Perhaps it's time to think outside the mall. To get a bit creative and crafty! Time for some DIY Fashion!
Outi Espoo of Finland has an amazing blog about diy fashion which is where I found a how-to for making a chain vest (bellow) and where I discovered Maulou Paul who makes contemporary jewelry out of worthless items (above).
This is one of those sites that I get lost in links with and waste several hours.
Winter will be here before you know it. Make this twisted ladder scarf.
I came across The White Owl Etsy shop and found so many pieces to be so inspiring. Great ideas for turning some of my old broken pieces into new accessories. It gives you a new way to look at that bag of junk jewelry for $1 at the thrift stores.
Make these easy lace earrings.
Ruffle shoulder piece tutorial.
Paper chains necklace. kinda silly....
Turn a full skirt into a bubble skirt.
How to make a ruffled vest by Threadbangers. If you have not heard of Threadbangers before- I warn you know to leave yourself a few hours because it is really easy to just watch and watch and watch their videos and lose track of time.
Craftster and Instructables are fantastic sources for patterns, ideas and help.
Think outside the mall and before you know it, you'll have to make a rack to hang all of your newly made clothes!
