Bolero Bonanza! (How to)

Today I spent an absolutely splendid and happy afternoon with my fabulous sweetheart friend Ragnhild <3
Lying about on cushions, enjoying good food and each others company.. ah, good times! :D

Yesterday a reader named Tina asked if I could share how I make my scarf-come-boleros,
so Tina, this one is for you! :D


1. Pick a scarf!

2. Measure out how long you want the sleeves, and put a safety-pin near your armpit

3. Put a safety-pin close to your other armpit

4. Lay the scarf down and double it up so that the two safety-pins meet.
Cut the the scarf where you measured the first sleeve.

5. Sew from the end of the sleeves to the safety-pin on both sides

6. Frey the egdes on the sleeves or stich them properly if you prefer

7. And voila! Schlep it on and enjoy your handywork!
Of course I had to change my dress to show off the new bolero made from absolutely wild material :)
(The other dress is a reworked tunique from H&M)

This white dress is my own design, teamed up with a kitchy tiger (Pieces), studded bangle (H&M)
and peacock hair piece (Indiska)


This is my beautiful friend Ragnhild, a fashionista in her own right!

Thoughtful as ever, Ragnhild brought me the most fantastic flowers!
Loved them so much we had to enjoy them even in the garden :D


Happily giddy after our hilarious backyard bolero bonanza LOL
<3

Making shrugs out of scarves is a brilliant idea. Simple and expressive, so everyone can make one, and noone's looks the same. LOVE it!
