I wanted to share a recent (easy) make with you.
I've wanted a pair of leather shorts for a good few months and, after having a little look around, I concluded that they're pretty expensive things- I'm talking to you Topshop!
So I decided to grab myself a cheap pair of unwanted leather trousers and make some myself. I got a pair from eBay which were great leather, but unfortunately more like a size 8 than a 10.
I nabbed another pair in a size 12; however when I checked the label, I found that they weren't real leather! Pretty good imitation though (Marks and Spencer PU no less), plus the seller gave me some money back so they only cost me around £2!
First I chopped a big chunk of the legs off.
Then I turned them up once more, and here they are! I'm hoping they don't look too plasticy!
I didn't sew up the final turn-ups so that I can alter how short they are easily.
|Earrings: gift (boyf/camera man), All Saints Necklace: gift (boyf) Blouse: £2.29, charity shop Belt: 50p, charity shop Ring: Primark Shoes: Office|
|Probably my favourite shoes ever- and the most I've paid for flat shoes!|
Okay so now let me tell you about my 'baby' which I'll be nurturing for the rest of the year!
I'm producing a creative fashion magazine as my third year uni project. The magazine celebrates money saving, recycling, creativity and individuality in fashion and is concerned with all things crafty, vintage, thrifty, customised, handmade, quirky and cool.
I thought I'd let you guys know all about the magazine as I think it'll interest most of you!
My blog is also going to take a bit of a backseat due to the workload so I thought I'd share the magazine's official blog (also run by me). Just click the screengrab below to go to the site. It'd be great if you could give it a read and if you like it, add it to your reader or subscribe.
It'd be great if you could follow the magzine's twitter too: @TrashionMagazine or join the Facebook page here.
Thanks in advance for any support and any feedback would be appreciated :)
