Rectangular crochet doilies make lovely corset belts. Wrap around your waist and attach with a ribbon through the holes of the crochet. What a fun way to add a little colour, warmth, shape and spunk!

Un-See-Through

During hot summer days I prefer light fabrics. I think clothes are the best sun block! Some clothes however have an unwanted quality to show a bit too much in the sunlight. Here’s my solution for very thin harem pants (from Rishikesh, India). Special thanks to my colleague for the photo!

A bought this unfitting shirt from a recycling center just because of the fabric: black with metallic threads. Cut the shirt under arms and hand stiched the elastic to the waist already on holiday location.
