Midsummer is big celebration day in Finland, but I’m not too exited about it. Weather in Finland in June is unpredictable at its best, so I’m spending my midsummer day home, cleaning my wardrobe and implementing some instant reward DIY projects.
I trashed a tunic and a T-shirt dress with my beloved fabric cutter. I forgot to photograph the white tunic at it’s untouched state, but the black one is this basic, almost sheer American Apparel dress. Note all the cat hair… :-S
I’ve used both dresses mainly as undergarments. The idea was to incorporate them to layering like before – but I wanted to give them a right to stand out as their own, as independently interesting pieces.
From the white tunic I cutted out triangles and occassional quadrangles. The outlook of the surface is bit mosaic like. Assistant was available all the time, ready to give a hand… …er… …paw.
This was more time consuming than I thought, I got tired after the front and left the back untouched.
To the black dress i made only simple slits, lightning fast DIY project:
Excuse my laziness, I tested both out with the same silk cotton knit dress. But you get the idea.
I guess that I’m actually going to use these!
