Outfit: 3.1 Phillip Lim F/W 2015 Inspired T-Shirt



Long time no see! My life has taken a crazy busy turn these past 6 months, so while I would often think about blogging this or that, it just never turned into action.
A while ago I realized that the hamster wheel of work - housework - very little sleep wasn't sustainable, I decided to make a whole lot of gradual lifestyle changes and to go back to my hobbies and rebuilding my online presence.
I am generally not very confortable discussing turbulent changes in my life as they happen, but I suppose I will make a couple retrospective posts once I can look back on all the craziness from a different perspective.

To restart, I decided to go with showing my first DIY piece after a very long time of creative inactivity: 3.1 Phillip Lim (A/W 2015) inspired blouse, which I based on one of the dresses featured in the show. I used an old skirt with similar color scheme and  nice pattern and turned it into the front and back piece, adding sleeves, neck part and inserts from white jersey leftovers. I messed up the proportions of the inserts though, so I added more white in the form of crochetted lace I got second hand on eBay years ago. The material cost me altogether something like 50 c, the pattern alterations and sewing took only about 4 hours of work, and it is from re-purposed material - win win win.

Pants: Marks&Spencer, Prague
Top: DIY from old skirt
Boots: Bata, Prague
Coat: Migliore dept. store, Seoul







Yours truly
Vita

  3. Hello Vita,
    the t-shirt is crazy cool and I am glad you went back to the DIY. I don't know about you, but when I'm passing throw some weird moments in my life this helps me a lot. I am planning to start making some clothes for the summer too, we'll see how that will turn up.
    I hope despite the changes in your life things are well with you and I can't wait to see more DIY! (:

  7. glad to see you back! pěkný outfit, docela se těším na life update, snad to nevyzní stalkersky, ale tvůj život mě jako takový dost inspiruje :) taky jsem se rozhodla vrátit se zpátky do online světa, teď bloguju na stellaprotisvetu.blogspot.cz a fashion téma jsem už úplně opustila, ale doufám že ty budeš pokračovat ;)

    1. Jé, děkuju, už jsem novou adresu postřehla. :) Life update asi vytvořím až ještě za pár měsíců až se to trochu usadí... Nebo to rozdělím na recap studia a "co potom", haha.
