DIY Dree Hemingway’s Jersey Wrap Skirt

Have just found out from Who What Wear that Dree Hemingway made this gorgeous grey skirt one day when she was bored, definite DIY inspiration. Long pieces of jersey are great for creating layered and draped skirts. You’ll need:

  • Some grey marl jersey fabric, about the size of a bath towel
  • pins, needle and thread
  • great legs

Simply wrap around a few times, and drape and pull tight to create the v and runched fabric at the front. Then tie/pin or sew the fabric in place.

DIY Rodante Style Tattoos via Outsapop Trashion

I sincerely hope that Outi from Outsapop Trashion doesn’t get well and truly sick of me referencing her blog, but I am constantly and utterly blown away by her keen eye for DIY inspiration (she definitely sowed the seeds for my DIY addiction!). This one is NO exception. I for one was completely wowed by the body art in the Rodarte SS2010 runway show, and Outi hit the nail on the head when she posted recently about how easy this could be to do yourself! I can imagine doing one hand, highlighting a design that follows the bones, for some festival magic.

DIY Altered Maxi Dress

Love the way Jazzi McG has dealt with being too short for most maxi dresses by cutting this one into a mini dress at the front, with a long train at the back. When the maxis get old (which may be soon given how prolific they are at the moment, you can barely go out for lunch with your friends anymore without having to call each one beforehand to make sure you’ll not all be rocking clashing printed maxis at the same time!!) this is a definite maxi update posibility.

You’ll need:

  • maxi
  • scissors
  • confidence like Jazzi
