Currently listening to my co-worker talking about the worst exam.

I absolutely enjoy not only writing on this blog but also reading it too. I don’t only read my blog though, I stay searching for bloggers whose blogs my creative mind can feast on and I was super glad when I discovered Fashionenth. She is hella fashionably chic and today’s DIY was inspired by her Dorothy Perkins patchwork jeans.

What You’d Need : * A pair of jeans

* A piece of denim in a different shade (I used half a quarter of a yard approximately)

* Pair of scissors

* Sewing machine 

What You’d Need To Do :

* Note the areas you’d covered by your different shade of denim fabric
* Cut out two equal pieces large enough to cover measured area.

* With your sewing machine, sew it into place (I advice you seek help from your neighborhood seamstress to get a neat look if you’ve not handles a sewing machine before).

* Put on that jeans and strut, strut, strut, slayyyyyyyyy.

I was super impressed with how this turned out I couldn’t help paying the seamstress more than she requested because she took my instructions well and after I deconstructed this denim she reconstructed it back to perfection. Now I have my own patchwork denim without having to spend £28 which is what the Dorothy Perkins one costs. I’m sure you can tell both my wardrobe and wallet are very happy right now.

Totally unrelated : If you’ve been reading this blog you’d know I love Sade of inmysundaybest and today I surprisingly got featured on her blog, you can checkout her post here.

          Till next time… xoxo
