Tutorial: No Sew Versatile Vest

First you need fabric that don't ravel like knit or jersey fabric. Cut 1 x 1.5 m and fold in two as in the drawing.

Next grab your scissors and cut a 20 cm slit like the drawing shown.

Open the fabric, there should be two holes for your arms to go through. And you're done!

Wear it as a hooded vest or simply turn it upside down and wear it as a drape collar vest, each with many styling options. How's that for a versatile piece!

Bought the bird hanging at ideku handmade during my visit to Inacraft.. love it!


A couple of days ago I found time to visit Inacraft 2011, the 13th Jakarta International Handicraft Trade Fair which held in Jakarta Convention Center.

Besides getting overwhelmed with all the pretty stuff there, I'm so happy to finally met lovely Puri from ideku handmade for the first time. 

Too bad teh Lia from Calyx couldn't come to the fair, though you can find her work there. I also visit Amesh from dreamesh and friends' booth but didn't meet them personally.. hopefully I can see them in other occasions :)

For you who happen to be in Jakarta right now, you still have the chance to visit them since the fair is on until Sunday, 24 April. Have fun!

Refashion: Overall Skirt to Harem Jumpsuit

This was an overall skirt that I seldom wear.

Turn it inside out and sew close the bottom part along the red line as shown in the drawing, leaving two holes big enough for your feet to go through. Cut away the excess fabric, turn right side out.

You can also refashion your midi or maxi full skirt this way. Hope this tutorial is useful in some way, please share if you make something similar.. thank you (^_^)

Easy No Sew Refashion


A loose blouse or tunic (which I found a bit boring).

1. Pinch the front part of the blouse right in the middle.

2. Bring it up to the neck line like so.

3. Secure with a pretty brooch.


A beautiful drapey top!
