Another ultra-hot Greek weekend is on its way, and while flirting with 40oCelsius I cannot resist posting my latest diy obsession: how to give a fresh and romantic touch to this black & white stripe dress.
After spending hours to the fabrics store chatting with my favorite kind old lady there, I got this beautiful white cotton eyelet trim (ok, not just this...) and lots of courage to go on (since I do not have a sewing machine…).
The idea is simple and the execution steps quite easy and so are the materials you’ll need for the transformation:
· A soft cotton dress or skirt
· White eyelet trim (lace will work as well)
· A pair of scissors
· A sewing kit, including: needle, white thread, measuring tape and lots of pins
Fix the eyelet trim on the dress’s bottom hem, inside out, using several pins, making sure you keep a straight line all the way.
Sew the trim along the dress. I’m sure it will not take you more than four minutes. I had to sew it by hand on straight stitches... It seems it took me more than two hours to complete the stitching, but it was super fun and exciting!
Remove the pins, turn the dress on the proper side and feel proud of yourself: you’ve just turned a quite indifferent piece into a brand new dress with a girly romantic breeze!
Have a nice weekend & keep smiling!
