Selfmade | White Summer Coat


Selfmade | White Summer Coat
I had been looking for a simple white coat for a long time, but could never find a good one.. So i decided to take matters in my own hands and make it myself!

I got my pattern via Burda Style Magazine. With a lot of focus, good reading and some own insight, i finished the coat! It's not th├ít difficult to make, so if you have any sewing skills and a little insight, you might even be able to make this as well. 
I made this coat with very light and easy flowing fabric, which i think will be perfect for the summer!
Monday i will be leaving for Croatia for 10 days and can't wait to wear it!

I'm also thinking of making this coat with leather when i return from vacation, what do you think?!

Hologram Nails

I bought this nail polish a while a go at Fabuloustreet and finally tried it out! They have all kinds of hologram effects! I got the 08 Flash Black.
Unfortunately, i do have to say that it keeps peeling off really fast.. but, the effect is really cool! Especially in the daylight!

You can find it here: Hologram Nails 
In case you are interested in this nail polish, don't forget to order the base file. With this base file you need to file all nail surfaces with both sides of the file. You can find the base file here: Base File
After that, you can start polishing your nails. I recommend to apply 2 coats, so you can get the best effect!

Selfmade | Quilted Bomber Jacket

Selfmade | Quilted Bomber Jacket
A couple of months ago i found this quilted fabric and immediately knew i needed to make this into a bomber jacket. But, because of my school i didn't have time to finish it. Now i finally did and i'm very happy with how it turned out!!

What you'll need:
- Quilted fabric or other fabric you really like
- Lining fabric (in case your fabric needs to be lined)
- Zipper
- Some firm fabric for the finishing touches at the bottom of the jacket, sleeves and collar 

I got my pattern from a bomber jacket i already had, and lined all the pieces. 
Because it wasn't the easiest DIY, i had to take a really good look on how this jacket was put together. 
After i connected all the pieces together with some pins, i tried it on to see if i needed to adjust anything. After a little adjusting, i could finally sew all the pieces together.
After that, i added the zipper at the front and added some firm fabric at the bottom of the jacket, sleeves and collar. 

Tip: I think it's very helpful if you try the jacket on after every adjustment you make, just to make sure the jacket fits well. Also, see if your sleeves ar the same lenght and if your right side of the jacket is similar to your left side.
