Patches + Clothes – Fabspiration (2nd Edition)

Trailing after the first edition of beautiful patches on jeans that I posted back in 2014, the trend originally started with DKNY back in 2014 when Cara Delevingne wore them for their advert, and nearly every brand has adopted the patches into their collections, because they are just so cool!

Here’s the second edition of patches on clothing (mostly denim though), with more inspirations for you to get hooked onto and revamp your jeans that you would be thinking about trashing/donating! I’m highly inspired by the pop-art comic representation at the back of my jacket… Might just DIY it super soon!

Fabspiration – Floral Crop Shirt

1

Hey y’all!

It’s the season of flowers blooming in your backyard, making everything smell fresh and earthy and the best way to announce that Spring has arrived right on time. Just like last week, with The DIY Floral Headpiece, this week shall also involve a bit of flowers. What can I say? I’m currently obsessed with them.

This week it’s the Flowery Crop SHIRTS.

That’s right.

Let’s forget tshirts for sometime, because I’ll be upcycling my formal office wear shirts into something that’s adorable and not-so-plain. An ah-may-zing DIY that everyone should definitely try!

Stay tuned to check out the insanely brilliant DIY tomorrow.

Fabspiration of the Week – Floral Headpieces

Hey y’all!

Warm and hearty welcome to the Spring season of 2015!

Nothing gets me more excited than spring time and the celebration of flora and fauna. Not to mention, in Mumbai, spring time is a rather short, which is why I make sure I enjoy it even more. But I have plans to celebrate this year’s spring season even into summer time.

How, you ask. By DIY-ing lots of things that would remind me of the freshness of spring time!

And this week, it shall be the most beloved floral headpiece!

Floral headbands are girly, beautiful and not to mention the prettiest way to accessorise any outfit. Probably inspired by ancients Greeks and their olive head wreaths, the modern take is equally serene and stunning.

Fabspiration of the Week – Knots ‘N’ Knits

 

Hey y’all!

Fabspiration of this week takes me back to school days when Girl Guides used to be a big thing. Ropes, knots and such.

Knotting is one technique to create amazing accessories for the neck, waist and wrist. You probably have seen scores of such accessories on Pinterest, craftgawker and Tumblr. Yet this week, I’ll be showing one such DIY project to you all because I’m planning to go all nautical this summer. It’s time to go ‘Aye! Aye, Sailor!’ from ‘flora & fauna’!

Stay tuned to see what DIY project I’ve planned for tomorrow!

Fabspiration of the Week – Velvet ‘N’ Denim

Hey y’all!

This week is the beginning to something awesome because the DIY I have in mind for you is simply AH-MAY-ZING! It’s so bloody awesome, that it tops my charts for being an all-time favourite DIY so far. Like that good.

Let me first explain how the inception of such an idea came about…

Colour blocking is one of my favourite ways to experiment with outfits and recently I’ve enjoyed playing with textures, colours, etc. as you can see from my recent Mosh Says…, DIY Lace ‘N’ Plaid Shirt and DIY The BFF Tshirt.

And sitting inside my craft box is an old charcoal black pair of jeans that is dying to get some revamp done. And then throw in some velvet… Yes! I got the very best of my DIY projects ready to be proudly presented to you.

Stay tuned to see the DIY tomorrow!

Fabspiration of the Week – Embellished Plaid Shirts

Hey y’all!

This week, as the winter draws to a close, and the spring is on its way, I feel that a bit of plaid is going to be the perfect pick of the week. It’s been quite sometime now that I have been wanting to experiment with plaid-esque patterns in DIY, and thanks to the ton of ideas that Vivienne Westwood (who is pretty much the Tartan Queen) has been imparting in the last few decades, all I can now see is: Flannel. Plaid. Tartan.

But what’s the difference between the three? Well, a bit of textiles classes back in college clarified this.

Flannel: a type of fabric which is made of wool or cotton mixed with some acrylic or polyester. It feels very soft and cozy.

Plaid: it is the type of pattern, often printed on flannel fabric, that is made of straight lines of varying sizes crossing each other perpendicularly to form “chequered patterns” or tartan like prints.

Tartan: is the the plaid pattern woven together (not printed) in Scotland mostly which signifies mostly Highland families and their political allegiances.

There!

So the fabspiration of the week is embellishing on a plaid pattern. And DIY shall be an amazing one for sure.
