Not most of you know that one of my oldest hobby is sewing. I've started to learn sewing during my 4th grade. My mom has her own sewing machine and I enjoyed watching her, cutting beautiful fabrics and have those colorful threads. It was my first love.
Last few weeks ago, I've got this project done and I really like the result. At first, I can't decide what to wear for the UNIQLO Fashion Show, and buying a new clothes is not an option for me that time. So I decided to upcycled my over-sized T-Shirt, that I've got from a friend as a gift - a souvenir shirt from Australia, with a beautiful aboriginal prints. I've got all my sewing stuffs and I started to do some magics!
First I've made a pattern out of newspaper, then I placed it to my T-shirt and start cutting off the excess. I cut-off the sleeves and cutting an arc in the hemline, and after hand-sewing (ohh yes, I don't have my sewing machine here) then here's the finished project.
Look at this design? Isn't it beautiful? For me it's unique and I believe it will stand-out.
I've paired it with my rusty-colored shorts, black leggings and my black boots. Very casual but chic (and economical). I've successfully pull-it, without swiping my magic cards.!
Yes this is only hand sewed. I have perfected hand sewing for many years and I am proud of it. :D I am excited also for my other upcycle projects and new designs, so just stay tune gals!
