It’s been a long while since my last D.I.Y. Been wanting to try this ever since I saw it on Love Aesthetics, that’s right, wholly inspired by her. Ain’t taking the credit for such a wonderful idea; Ivania used real leather which I’ve serious difficulty in finding both good quality & price reasonable ones, thus I turned to the mighty land of TB & bought PU leather instead. Got it at a really cheap price from the seller here. Now I’m tempted to get more & churn out more D.I.Y ideas! Elaborated more on the steps below.
I didn’t have the benefit of having a sewing machine thus having to hand sew the stitches, some may feel the exposed stitches are ugly but I’m perfectly alright with it, in fact I feel it gives the top another look. Ivania suggested having a little slit at the back for easy wearing as this top “has no stretch & will slit like a box around you”. It really depends on the size of your top as mine doesn’t have the slit & yet it’s still easily worn for me, especially love the structured box effect. Initially my top wasn’t cut in enough to be a racer front so I had to trim & sew again. It still looks less racer than what I wanted, thinking if I should trim it a little more. What do you think?
