DIY lantern sleeve crop top

Recently I’ve found a little gem at Zara: A striped crop top with the most perculiar sleeves. They’re called lantern or bell sleeves, I think. It was love at first sight, so I took that gorgeous top home with me. Unfortunately, we had to part ways soon thereafter, since it didn’t fit correctly. I’ve searched their website for the correct size, but it wasn’t available there either. Checking back a week later, to see if they’d restocked, I discovered that they removed the top from the webshop entirely.

DIY African print peplum top

 

The nice thing about African print fabric is that it’s sold in pre cut pieces of 6 yeards. So you can sew multiple items out of one piece of fabric. Earlier I showed you a pencil skirt, and this time I’ll show you a peplum top I’ve made out of the same fabric.

When I saw this pencil skirt in the Burda magazine I knew I had to sew it. A ruffled pencil skirt with a draped detail is totally my thing.

One skirt, two ways

I bought this pencil skirt a while back at Zara, but it just sat in my closet, not knowing what to do with it. Once I’ve finally found the inspiration to create a look with it, it was enough to create not one, but two outfits. I’ve paired the skirt with two tops that I’ve made myself using patterns from Burdastyle.

My love for sewing my own clothes was fueled by the love for African prints, or so called Ankara fabric. I used to see the most beautiful clothing on Pinterest, in the most gorgeous, colorful prints. I fell in love and wanted it all! But where do you buy something like that?

You just can’t go wrong with a pencil skirt when in need for a classy look. It’s become one of my wardrobe staples. To switch it up a bit I’ve made this pencil skirt with a little twist, a trumpet skirt. I’ve made the pattern of this skirt by using an existing skirt as a base.

The perfect camel coat

I’m sure it hasn’t gone unnoticed, camel coats are hot this winter! And even though its on trend now, it is truly a timeless wardrobe staple. And very versatile indeed. You can dress it up for a chic and classy look, or dress it down with a casual outfit. All the more reason to add this to your wardrobe! If you can find one, that is. I’ve searched high and low, but haven’t been able to find one that I liked, or for the price that I liked. I want it to be fairly long, below the knee. And maybe a tad bit oversized, like a ‘boyfriend’ coat. Something like this one from ASOS:
