3 Summer outfit DIY's you need to try!


I have recently rediscovered Pinterest and something that I have been loving is making your own summer clothes! I like doing DIY things and also saving money on clothes because cute ones can be very expensive.  I thought I would  share with you some of my favourite ideas!

This post is also a collab with my lovely friend White Interiors. She is also doing DIY summer clothes so make sure to check her post out after you read this one
Idea #1: Patchwork shorts - image credit
This one is really simple. Glue/sew fabric or lace or even paint on the back pocket or your shorts to renew them! This is such a sweet idea and I definitely want to do this. It adds a different touch to an otherwise regular pair of shorts and it is so customisable.

Idea #2: Swimsuit cover up - image credit
Take a vest made out of thick material and cut the bottom half into strands. The next bit is kind of hard to explain but if you split the strands into pairs with the strands next to each other, then tie them in a knot. After that, split the strands again and tie. (If that doesn't make sense look at the pictures!)

Idea #3 Crop top - image credit
This would be ideal if you had a tshirt with a design you really like and create it into a summer outfit. To make this, cut along the shirt like in the picture above and then tie the two bits hanging down together. 

I am definitely going to give all of these a go. I might even try cutting my jeans into shorts and then adding fabric to them!
