More shredding

Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been keeping busy with a few DIY projects and some much needed illustrating. I felt I needed a black shredded something. I started searching through thrift shops for the perfect black cotton shirt. Six hours later is my DIY Raquel Allegra! I must say it is so addictive and almost meditative minus the sore fingertips.

  4. Thank you everyone! I can't wait to wear it.

    April: I searched for a slouchy thin cotton that wasn't faded and with a bigger neckline. I think this is a womens XL, it had 2 slits on the side and was pretty long like a mini dress. So I cut the front across and left a 3 inch difference in the back. It took 2 days 3 hour each, so six total. I just put on this film called Electric shadows, So good!! By the end I was bursting into tears but still shredding...lol

  7. I have to tell you I really love your style! You are my favorite Wardrobe remix blog! I found you by googling "cloak hood" I too am on a quest for the perfect Cloak Hoodie! But alas, another season has past and I haven't found one yet! Do you have a link for the olmar and mirta cloak hoodie!? I'm smitten!
