Recently Boohoo invited me to customize one of their maxi shirt dress to create the perfect look to wear at summer festivals. They also sent me a DIY kit to have fun with.
I decorated the dress with roses, crown and a winged heart with the rock writing inspired by the classic tattoo drawings and the spirit of rock.
|Boohoo DIY kit|
Glue (diyer best friend) puffy paint and lots of stick on gems.
Lot's of good stuff but today all you need is
- carbon paper (for fabric)
Thanks to my sister for modeling for me.
Wear the dress and insert a pin where you want the cut out part to start. It can be on knees or above them.
Measure the length from the pin to the hem of the dress, this it the height of your triangle.
Measure the width of the front panel of the dress at the hem and this is the base of your triangle.
Draw your triangle on paper and use the shape as a guideline.
Draw into it whatever you like.
Every part of your drawing must be divided into small parts because you don't want to create big holes into the fabric.
Don't cut out hems to keep the dress intact.
Put the dress on your table and fold it in half vertically to find the middle of the front.
Baste the center line so your drawing will be well centered!
Place the carbon paper between the dress and the drawing and trace the outline of the drawing.
Put the dress on a stiff surface and press the pen to be sure the drawing will be transferred on the fabric.
I also added two little birds just under the bust. One on each side.
Now the fun part!
The drawing transferred on fabric.
Follow the drawing and cut inside the edges with a sharp pair of scissors.
This is how it looks once cut. That's it! Repeat for every drawing on your dress.
Now that you have the dress let's talk about music festivals around Europe and the tour dates you can't miss (in my opinion) if you're around (tour dates in the link).
My suggestions are
Exit festival in Serbia which is getting bigger and bigger every year. Five days of music from 10th of July to the 14th.
Prodigy, David Guetta, Fat boy Slim will perform among others.
Which concerts you just can't miss this summer? Send me suggestions, they're really appreciated!
