Well the sun appears to have finally started to show its face in the UK.
It’s encouraging me to get out all the denim and checked items I’ve been slowly collecting over the recent months. I’ve got a stash of them!
I’m working on levi shorts and other vintage cutoffs. These are being studded and having little extras added to them.
Some will have bleach effects too. I quite like to use bleach to create patterns in the material rather than just to lighten the denim.
I’ve also got some denim jackets which are being turned into sleeveless waistcoats.
I studded up a couple of maternity skirts last autumn and they were sold as soon as I put them online, so I have another couple of those to work on. They looked really cool and you won’t find anything like them in the High Street.
On the shirts side of things I have some more of my popular re-worked checked and denim shirts. Some are going to be sleeveless and some will have roll up sleeves. They’ll also be studded.
These are a cool cowgirl or rockabilly style that can be dressed up or down and are perfect for holiday or festivals.
I couldn’t really get inspired to do these while we had the grey skies, even more so when everywhere kept getting covered in snow. The sun’s out and now these are getting a make over.
They’ll be up on the Etsy and eBay shops soon. Contact me if you want something special.
