DIY Fringed Sweater & What I Wore

DIY fringed top
All the London Fashion Week chatter must have seeped into my brain a bit this week. First off, inspired by all the gothy textured looks seen on the catwalk and on the high street, I made this fringed top for autumn. As you can plainly see, it’s just made from a basic top from H&M, some loop fringing from ebay and about half an hour of hand-sewing. Simple, cheap and effective.

Secondly, I’ve taken tentative baby steps into drawing again by doing some What I Wore Today contributions for Gemma‘s Flickr group. I’m going to aim to do one at least every other day; hopefully I will improve with the practice and find a nice drawing style of my own.

    Gorgeous top and drawings! Can I ask what materials you used for the pictures? I'm starting to get going on some sketching myself and I love the colour effect you got on these.

    If you need any encouragement to keep drawing, go see the Marescal exhibition at the Design Museum (again perhaps?). I absolutely love him. Everything begins with drawing.

    These are all lovely… and I'm loving your blog pages. Check your emails, I'd love to talk freelance-shop with you – I need a website!

    Hi warriorgrrl, I drew with ink pen on paper then scanned and used Photoshop to colour them.. what a cheat!

    I don't think that counts as cheating! It gives a lovely effect :0
