My love for mint

DIY Project

you'll be needing a sheet of paper, pencil, cissor, thread, needle, and a chalk.
(you can either sew it by hand or with the help of a sewing machine for a 
better outcome) 

First do the outline for the patch on a sheet of paper, then cut it out
(the paper pattern must be the exact copy of the desired patch)
My jacket already had double seams on the back, so I only had to trace them.
(if your jacket has a plane back, without seams, you have to mark the position of the patch on it)

then place the paper pattern on the back of the fabric you've chosen for the patch, take a piece of chalk and draw an outline on it. The direction line has to go with the grain of the fabric. The outline must be at least 1 cm wider on all sides, so that you can fold in the fabric when you sew it.
(here I've already folded the fabric and ironed it- this helps you see the trace you have to sew on)

next, place the patch on the jacket, matching the edges to the seams (or to the marked area) and sew the two fabrics together.
My mom's old sewing machine did the job for me :)

And there you have it!

Now your back deserves attention too

Good luck with your own DIY project!

Golden Twenties









Styling: Kathrin Seidel

Although this editorial is from 2011, I believe these flowy white dresses and
classically tailored, elegant  pieces should be present in our wardrobe
this summer as well.
I fell in love with the nude, layered cocktail dress and the purity of
 monochrome styling.
The vintage background with lush green plants and white interiors 
gives such warmth and freshness to the mood of this editorial...it 
makes me want to redecorate my room, wear pearls,
wear my hair wavy and go out to the country on horseback...
I absolutely love it!
Do you?

And sorry for not posting for so long; I've been mostly out 
of the house the past fiew days because of  Student Days.
