Holiday is over, and I have a very long period between finding out my A level results *cries* so to keep myself busy I've planned on doing a few little DIY projects every week or so. I used to really love sewing and just messing around with fabrics, I had bags full of old materials when I was a child, which I would spend hours playing with and making dresses with my friends - however because of college and studying Ive never had the time to sit down and have some fun with a needle and thread... until now :)
and here is my first DIY project: The lace collar.
I bought this dress from H&M about 2 (?) years ago, and I adore it, but I felt it needed a bit of revamp so i decided to add a little peterpan/lace collar to it :)
I got the lace and pearl beads from the Birmingham market, and I think all together is cost me £2.50 which isn't too shabby at all! The lace collar is actually meant for small toddlers - but shh!
Viola! A knitted dress with a cute lace collar. it was such a simple and cheap DIY I cant believe fashion stores will charge £30 or more for something similar or, to be honest, ANYTHING, with a little collar on it just because its "on trend".
tell me what you think please!
