DIY Upcycling/ Americana Cushion

Do you ever happen to buy a (strange) stuff only because its material was appealing to you? Of course I did. No later than last month. I get this huge men shirt on the flea market. I knew that I’d never wear it, and to me it was clear that a new home decor item would come soon. Actually I already made a similar experience here, but it’s been a while.

So it is now a pillow case, and it looks much better than on myself… I liked the mix of colors and the rough material effect.

The polo shirt has been finished this week! The large basic top let place to a chic but sportive shirt; You’ll find the whole tutorial in german language, as usual, on annabelle blog.

I reused the sleeves borders for the ruffles on the front, and kept the oversized shape on the armholes. Really like it -So it’s time to wear it! It was yesterday in Seefeld, I paired it with straight fit pants and velvet small bag. Yellow and navy blue look always great together.

DIY Ethno Inspo

This is a custom made top I realized about 5 years ago… And it looks as young as ever! I love ikaat prints like this one, but the tee-shirt was quite basic. Add long fringes and rivets on the shoulders, and here you go.
