Back today with a little DIY! I haven't done a DIY post in ages and had some ideas i really wanted to try out! Nothing huge but i thought i'd share anyway!
So while working in the charity shop over Summer i came across a lovely Ralph Lauren Jumper (check out the post here), i got it knowing it was too big but hoping i'd find a way to style it. Having worn it only once (in my post 'Mula') i decided to try and make it more wearable for me. Here's how it went!
- I started off by putting the jumper on and making a slit at my desired length. I made a rough fold and used safety pins to secure all the way through both sides.
- I used my hand to make this makeshift pocket tight and just hoped and snipped my way to the end!
- I wanted the dress to look a bit laid back and distressed so i used some tweezers and pulled the threads where i had cut in all different directions. It took about 45 minutes the whole way round!
- And that was it! A little jumper dress i thought would look cool with some trainers or Dr Martens. All that's left is to wash it so all the wool isn't leaving a trail everywhere!
Before i left for uni my mum gave me a huge pack of name labels, you know the ones your mum would sew onto your uniform when you were young? I thought i'd attempt to use one to spruce up this PU leather sketchbook.

I simply attached each end with a safety pin. I had to be careful as the notebook was pretty hard to get through!

Lastly my new winter coat! After seeing it on Rhea's blog i fell in love and used a 25% off discount i had to welcome it to my wardrobe. It's warm, oversized, sporty and has a cool masculine edge, perfect!
