D.I.Y MIDI SKIRT AND BANDEAU TOP

D.I.Y MIDI SKIRT AND BANDEAU TOP


Seemed like a long week. But I am back again doing what I love to do, show you guys how you can look like a 100$ with less than 10$. Doesn’t that sound great! No need to go bargain for an outfit while you can do it. Why spend 8000ksh on an outfit when you can spend 500ksh? I know… I know… HOW? You simply do it. You don’t need sewing skills, but if you do have some!? Great! Okay, this is not “who’s the cheapest contest” but how we can all look fabulous on a budget. By budget I mean low budget. I am a broke girl, most of us are. Why? Because we don’t own any property, have a stable income, some of us are jobless, still dependent, don’t own a car, still in school and have nothing in our bank accounts, very little or we don’t even have a bank account. If you fit anywhere here, you are broke! And welcome to my blog.
Today we are going to turn rags to riches. Yes you’ve heard that term before, so have I but we are taking it to the extreme. I always go big and if I can push it? Bigger! It’s going to be, Fa-fa-fabulous with a sexy touch of vavavoom. Let’s get started, I am just too excited.



WHAT WE NEED:

-          Scissors
-          A needle and Thread
-          A strapless dress or a strapless top

   

If you do not have a strapless dress or a strapless top; Don’t worry, You can get for as little as 50bob ( Ngara, Kawangware, Gikomba or anywhere on the street in Nairobi). But please make sure that the fabric is elastic. This is necessary. My dress is actually a balloon dress that I stopped wearing for a long time and came across it the other day, and was like “This is an awesome fabric” Then couldn’t wait for Friday.

PART 1…. OF THE OUTFIT


STEP ONE:
Cut the dress or the top below the chest area and a few inches more, because you are going to need those inches, to do the sewing.


STEP TWO:
Start sewing the extra inches back inside the upper part of the dress that you just cut. And you are done. You have yourself a Bandeau top.



If you think it’s a bit too revealing for you, you don’t have to dress it the way I did, you can wear it with a denim, with a maxi skirt and a waterfall top.



PART 2…. OF THE OUTFIT



Here unless you have sewing skills, Congrats! you can do this on your own, without spending a dime. But for the rest of us who don’t have sewing skills or own a sewing machine. Still easier, Take it to the tailor “Fundi” and ask them to turn the remaining part into a skirt. It will be cheap because not much cutting is required and skirts are fast and easy. This may cost you about 200-300ksh!

AND VOILA!!!


I am in love with this outfit. Anybody got a birthday, an event. Let me know, because I am ready to rock this outfit. It’s comfortable, it’s sexy and it’s Rshan. See you guys next week. I LOVE YOU



THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR VISITING

  2. i soo feel you, i am also quite frugal and i think some things are unecessary, with a little sewing and a little hemming you can turn a sh500 outfit to look much better than a sh8k one... Kudos
