wrapped in pastel

Bought this 80’s dress on a vintage market because of the fantastic fabric.
It has marble and stone like textures printed all over it in pastel blues, purples and greens. Unfortunately it was 218466345 sizes too big. So today I cut it in half,
used the skirt part as a dress and wrapped the rest of the fabric around my head like a turban head band.

How resourceful of you to cut it in half! The pattern really is to good to pass up. And now it's 2 pieces instead of one. talk about bang for your buck...

Voor school moest ik een stand opbouwen om een zelfbedacht concept voor een kleding merk te presenteren. Dat heeft heel slecht uitgepakt hahaha

Dus ja een kut beurs :)

Aaah pastel. Voor examen Nederlands moest ik duizende woorden aan woordenschat leren. Woorden die ik nooit eerder van gehoord had, maar na de test zag ik ze overal staan, zo’n woorden waren het. Tussen al die woorden stond wel pastel en ieder keertje wanneer het zag, werd ik ietsje gelukkiger, kon ik me toch identificeren met …iets. Ik heb een tachtig voor mijn examen behaald.
Een lang verhaaltje om te vertellen hoeveel ik van je diy projecten houd. En pastelkleuren en hoofdbanden aja.
