This small silk cut is from my last trip in Berlin and was desperately hanging on my mini inspiration boards as I realized that it would perfectly fit with a small DIY embellishment. I stumbled last week on this post by Alexandra (Lovely Peppa) and fall in love in her tee-shirt with its loose pocket. How effortless & cool is that!
Small details, big effects? -that’s what i wanted to experiment.
There are obviously some pieces that you wear only for casual moments, a weekend at home, and so on.
An example: this fine oversized tee-shirt. This is typically the way I’m used to wear it. Perfect to go to the supermarket on saturday morning.
H&M tee-shirt & jeans,
Vintage leather bag –from here
Sonia Rykiel bag hanger
vintage and hand-made bracelets
The loose pocket, DIY: you need a small quarter of silk and/ or patterned material, scissors and needles. First cut a sample pocket scheme in a tick paper, with the following measurements:
Add one more generous centimeter around the paper sample, cut the material. Hand sew the top of the pocket;
Wear the tee and define the position of the pocket. Pin the material, do an inside hem and sew a perfect quarter (make sure that the upper part length is the same that on the bottom to make a loose movement)
Now the patterned pocket seems to be a great connection with the military jacket and the tee, that I would have never match that way before. But i don’t like the jeans with this combo.
