I really don’t know why, but I really have a big obsession on vests and blazers. How I wish I could live in the 1930′s!
P.S I just love my “new” shorts. It’s actually an old pair of pants that I never wore. I ran out of shorts to wear to other day, so I decided to cut that one up. I think I will be wearing it very often from now on!

When I was a kid I remember playing with my bedsheets, pretending it was a gown and I’m on my way to a party. A few years after, I realised, I do need gowns to go to some parties. The problem is, I don’t really want to spend so much on something that I would probably wear only once in my life. (Imagine wearing the same gown over and over again *gasp*) So I decided to make a DIY gown that wouldn’t cost me much money and time to make. And when the party is done, I could use it for something else. Believe me or not, I really did this gown for only ten minutes… or a little under that.
What you need:
The skirt and bolero is totally optional, but I suggest you to really have something under this DIY gown to prevent any unwanted exposure.
Yes, you only need one (1) safety pin. This is used on the silk around the chest area just to fit it into place. Then I put on the belt and do random rouching on the top part of the gown. Sorry, I’m not really good with explaining how things are done, so maybe these pictures will help.
Too lazy to iron the cloth! Haha!
For those who are wondering if this gown can hold up for several hours, I believe it can! I was wearing this gown for a couple of minutes inside my room while running and posing and chasing my dog because it keeps on chasing the bottom part of the gown.
