DaisyCombridgeDaisyCombridge Comfort plus cuteness makes for a winning combo, so punch up your look with a poncho! Create a fresh look by reinventing a classic piece and stay cozy with this nouveau hoodie overhaul.To create, make a cut from the side seam of the sweatshirt body as well as each side of the inner-arm. Open up the neckline with a crew neck cut-out. Be sure to cut ONLY the top layer so you don’t loose the hood. Close up the back by pinning large safety pins (or feel free to sew) across your new open seam. Cut the bottom sides (both front and back) into a curved shape, keeping the back a bit longer than the front. Secure the sleeve to the torso, which creates a poncho silhouette. Use large safety pins and pin approximately halfway down the bodice. For the armhole, attach buttons on the top and bottom front sections. Use any button you like and attach with safety pins or sew. Use the same buttons to add accents to the shoulder seam.
DaisyCombridgeDaisyCombridge P is for Personality, which is precisely what printed jeans ooze of. Glide your way into this mainstream must-have with this denim DO! Get inspired by Balmain’s coveted graphic jean with a snakeskin twist. Bulgari’s Serpenti Collection of chic bracelets, bags, wallets and watches has slithered into our hearts, helping our style shine bright. Infuse a luxe snakeskin-esque pattern with a pop of print… it’s just what the DIY doctor ordered. To create: use a solid colored pair of jeans for the base. Use scissors to cut zig zag shapes out of kitchen sponges and textured sponge cloths into 2” inch strips. Apply an even coat of fabric paint onto the sponge surface and press directly onto the denim starting from the outside edge. Hold sponge for a few seconds allowing paint to absorb into the material. Continue to create vertical patterns down the legs. For a more textured effect, overlap sponges as you go. Let one side dry completely before turning over to repeat the process on the back.
