gingham top #2

This top was sewed last year but never worn until now, as it was stored with all my summer clothes. So it was amazing to find it when I did my seasonal closet switch. I didn't remember that I drawed this kind of flower (used a textile marker pen) probably inspired by Melanie, who is so fabulous!
Now there are some projects to add some other 'embellishments' on my clothes, but it's summer and I'm really doing a lot of walking, swimming (and having fun) which let me a little free time to be crafty. And I also have a work!
Joining Patti and the visibles in another Visible Monday 'cause they totally rock. And wishing you a fabulously visible week!

Esta blusa estaba por estrenar, guardada con toda mi ropa de verano, desde el año pasado que fue cuando la hice. Así que fue una sorpresa total encontrarla al cambiar de temporada. Ni siquiera recordaba esta especie de flor que dibujé, usando un rotulador para tela, probablemente inspirada por la fabulosa Melanie.
Ahora tengo otros proyectos para añadir más elementos de adorno a mi ropa, pero estamos en verano y estoy más bien entretenida en pasear, nadar y divertirme, lo que me deja poco tiempo libre para ponerme creativa. Y también tengo un trabajo!
Enlazo al Visible Monday con las chicas visibles que son estupendas. Y os deseo una semana muy visible también!

Do you remember my one and only White Shirt?. Well, it has been transformed, thanks to the magic of tie&dye, into something more suitable (for me), but I'm still not absolutely happy with it. Thinking on some trimming, embroidery or applique or all of them!
(sorry for the low quality picture!)

¿Os acordáis de mi única camisa blanca?. Pues ha sido transformada, gracias a la magia del tie&dye, en algo mucho más adecuado a mi estilo, pero todavía no estoy contenta del todo con el resultado. Pienso en añadirle apliques, bordados, cintas, todo!

After sewing some cushions for our bedroom, I still had leftover fabric which I could use to sew a colorful striped robe-coat. I have a kimono pattern in mind!

Después de coser estos cojines para el dormitorio, quedó bastante tela sobrante, que podría servir para hacer una chaqueta-abrigo-lo que sea. Tengo un patrón para coser un kimono que vendría muy bien!

  1. What a fantastic makeover on that top. Melanie is an inspiration! Love what you've done with the white cover-up, too. The fabric from which you made those gorgeous pillowcases would make for a wonderful kimono, I can't wait to see you wearing it! xxx

  2. I love how you drew the flower on that top! Great job!


  3. I love the gingham-pattern, but normally I saw these as skirts,
    so it's a really cool idea, to wear it as a shirt. Such a vool makeover and great look my dear.

    take a look at my Blog and my Instgram

  4. I absolutely love your gingham top. It's a very flattering shape and I love how you've drawn the flower - what a clever idea. I loved your entire outfit; black, white and red are a lovely combination.

    The striped cushions are fabulous and a kimono in that material would be stunning. I love your paisley bedspread, too. The tie and die project looks magnificent; I am assuming the picture opposite it of you in a white top is the same one tie dyed? Amazing!

    I hope you're enjoying some lovely summer weather.

  5. How fabulous is your gingham top! I love how you have drawn the flower on it, I would never be brave enough to do that! And wow, that white shirt is truly transformed. I wonder what you will add? Your bedroom is looking really cool with its turquoise wall and funky striped cushions. What a wonderful room! Besos xxx

  6. Right on! I love that flower you drew. Using fabric markers was a great decision - Sharpie markers say permanent but on clothes they are not! I'm thrilled if I could inspire you. And the tie dye job you did is excellent. What about another creation in marker? I know you'll come up with something fabulous. I'm glad you're enjoying summer.

  7. So much inspiration here!!! I absolutely love your fabric creations! The flower, the tie-dye top is fantastic!! and your bedroom looks so wonderful and inviting! Love the stripes and the walls! <3
