Breathing new life into old clothes is an art form. Some people have vision for old clothes being new trends that the rest of us just don’t have. When I stumbled across A Pair & A Spare blog, I realized just how talented some of these remix masters really are.
Read the description of Geneva, the brains behind this super cool blog: A Pair & A Spare is a chronicle of Geneva’s day-to-day addiction to Do It Yourself fashion, where she shows you how to create the most desirable and on-trend fashion and lifestyle projects with minimal skill. Originally from Brisbane, Australia and now living in Hong Kong, Geneva believes in a sustainable approach to fashion and revels in making old new and on-trend using sewing, beading, studding, refashioning and a host of other projects. Proving that DIY Fashion can complement traditional fashion ideals, Geneva also posts a weekly DIY tutorial over at Harper’s BAZAAR Australia.”
Wow, do I feel like an underachiever. Luckily, Geneva is nice enough to post easy-to-follow tutorials to teach us her crafty ways. When I saw the gorgeous lilac dip-dyed skirt she created from an old white skirt, I fell madly enough. Check out these photos and follow her tutorial to create your own. (Isn’t it perfect for Easter?)
