DIY Cape Jacket

Arrrgh such a cool idea! A zip off cape, does it get any better than this? There are sooo many ways you could copy this, you could make your own waterproof one using using some cut out shower curtain (the cute ones they have at the pound store with pictures of rubber duckies on them would be good for festival wear!) or you could attached some jersey/wool fabric in this way to a grey marl sweater or cardigan. So many ideas! I can imagine how cosy it would be in winter if you made this using a load of thick soft wool fabric. I would even think about using buttons instead of a zip.

DIY Detachable Collar

Really like the look of a detachable collar, whether it fastens to the top you are wearing or just sits over the top like a necklace. Since the Miu Miu collar came out, there have been quite a few DIYs around showing you how to make a similar one, see my post here.It it is indeed such an easy DIY, just cut the collar off an olds mens shirt, making sure to keep the button on so it can be attached to your neck. You can even layer a few collars on top of each other, like a white one and a blue one, and wear it over a singlet or tee. A denim collar off a jacket or shirt would look great with a plain white tee and leather skirt.
