Fashion Revamp: Denim Dress with Embroidered Constellations (PT.1)

Constellation Trend

I have recently seen a massive increase in Galaxy and constellation trends, and I love it. I have always loved stars and constellations, I remember going on a school trip to the countryside and the sky had no light pollution and the sky was just so beautiful. So now that everyone else is loving constellations too I couldn’t be happier.

So that is why I have decided to upcycle/revamp a plain denim dress to be a little less boring and a bit more on trend!

What I have done is simply marked out a load of constellations along the bottom hem and then started embroidering!! I still have a little bit do do on it still. I want to do some more random small stars in little french knots around the constellations and then thin them out as it gets towards the middle of the dress. Hopefully will have this  done by next week and I will show you all the finished results!!

Thanks for reading!

Fashion Revamp! Topshop Denim Dungarees & Liberty Fabric

I recently decided to revamp a pair of old dungarees that I had. Originally bought from a topshop sale, they were a little small, but now a few years on I can fit in them! However I felt they were a little dull and needed a bit of “jazzing” up. So with a bit of Liberty fabric I had, I think I have added a bit of colour to a pair of bog-standard dungaree

Easy Steps:

1. Select Fabric.
2. Cut the the size of the inside and back pockets
3. Push fabric into pockets and line up.
4. Hand sew them into place.
5. For the back I cut a piece to fold over the top of the pocket.
6. Then hand sew to secure (I used a bright embroidery thread for this)

Done!
