Sheri is the Berlin-based blogger behind Confessions of a Refashionista, and she’s brilliant at thrifting and repurposing her finds. She finds the potential in not-so-amazing pieces and turns them into something wearable and fun. Today she’s agreed to share a tutorial on Kittenhood: a quirky bleach and lace denim pinafore that’s truly one of a kind:
I absolutely love the functional yet feminine combination of denim & lace and my oh-so-stylin’ Kittenhood inspired DIY overall dress
was the perfect choice for a bit of dainty embellishment. The result? A charming pinafore ideal for wandering through the flea market or a lazy day in the park…
What you need:
- denim pinafore (refashioned)
- lace bistro curtain
- sewing machine
Grab that denim pinafore/overall dress, a lace bistro curtain, bleach & elastics. Fold/scrunch up the dress and secure with the elastics. Submerge & soak the dress in an equal parts bleach & water mixture until your desired lightning is achieved then rinse & launder (I left mine for about 2 hours).
Arrange the lace bistro curtain on the front of the skirt, pin & stitch it on. Add some lace to the bib of the pinafore chop off the excess & enjoy your adorably unique new dress!
