I've been seeing these bow bandeau tops everywhere lately, and because they're absolutely gorgeous I really really wanted one, I looked them up on ebay and almost fell of a chair when saw the price, 20-50 euro for A TOP! what even is this.
Me a poor student can't really afford a top fo 30euro ( well if it was givenchy... but god not ebay ! )
so I had no other choice but go to my DIYer mode and make this !
Pretty isn't it ? :>
All you need is
a fabric of your choice
clasps ( I used bra clasps from my old bra ( + eco points for me)
and safety pins.
I measured approx 20cm of the fabric, folded it, marked the line with safety pins and cut away the fabric I needed for my top.
Now the worst part, turn the fabric inside out and sew it together . It will take you seconds if you have a sewing machine, I don't have one so it took me a while to do it, however I was watching Suburgatory in meanwhile so I turned this into quite an enjoyable experience.
After sewing the fabric together turn it inside out again, make sure the seam is in the middle ( or near at least), fold the sides and secure them and sew on the bra clasps.
( Excuse my non existing sewing skills, I'll work on them )
Tie the top in the very moddle with a good bit of thread.
Make a bow and sew it onto the very middle on the top ( where the thread is)
Secure the bow on both sides by making small stiches.
Here's me wearing my new top ! :)
