Cine ma cunoaste bine stie sa sunt un fan al proiectelor DIY (do it yourself) si ca imi folosesc adeseori cunostintele si indemanarea sa imi transform garderoba. Asa cum v-am aratat si cu alte ocazii (aici), va puteti imbunatati chiar voi hainele, de multe ori puteti transforma un obiect masculin intr-unul feminin, alteori o piesa mai veche poate fi modernizata sau chiar transformata total. Eu aduc tot felul de imbunatatiri garderobei mele, fie ca ma plictisesc, fie ca pur si simplu le privesc ca pe niste provocari si imi place sa le transform.

[EN] Everyone who knows me well knows that I’m a fan of DIY projects and that I often use my knowledge and skills to transform my wardrobe. As I have shown you on previous occasions (here), you can improve your own clothes, you can transform a male piece into a female one or just modernize old pieces of clothes. I bring all sorts of improvements to my wardrobe, either because I get bored of wearing it like that or simply because I love a style challenge.

Experienta mea de designer ma ajuta de multe ori in acest demers si ma face sa incerc si transformari mai dificile, dar pentru azi v-am pregatit o idee simpla si super usor de realizat acasa. Ok, trebuie sa aveti cunostinte minime de cusut :), dar daca va descurcati cu un ac si o ata, nu ar trebui sa aveti probleme.

Pentru ca multi m-au vazut purtand acest cardigan nude cu aplicatii de dantela la diverse evenimente si le-a placut ideea, m-am gandit sa mai transform si unul negru ca sa va arat ce puteti face cu o piesa basic. Aplicatia de pe cel nude este cusuta de mine manual iar rezultatul este spectaculos.

Cardiganul din imagine este unul basic, genul acela de model pe care il gasiti de la branduri gen H&M, Stradivarius samd si pana la cele mai finute din materiale naturale de la branduri cu pretentii. Indiferent de unde il luati, il puteti transforma si purta atat in varianta clasica, cu nasturii in fata, cat si in varianta adoptata de ceva vreme de catre cele mai curajoase iubitoare de moda, si anume cu nasturii in spate.

[EN] My experience as a designer allows me to try some difficult transformations, but for today I wanted to show you a super cute and easy home project on how to transform a basic cardigan.  Ok, you must have some basic sewing skills :), but if you can deal with a needle and a thread, you should have no problems.

Because many saw me wearing this nude cardigan with lace applications at various events and they liked the idea, I thought I should transform another one just to show you what can you do with a simple basic piece like this. The lace on the nude one is a little bit more complicated, but the result is spectacular. 

This black cardigan is one you can find everywhere, from fast fashion retailers to bigger brands. No matter the brand, you can add a little sparkle and wear it in the classic version, with the buttons in front, or in the modern version, with buttons on the back

Singurul lucru pe care l-am facut in aceasta transformare a fost sa cos acele aplicatii argintii (pe care le gasiti prin mercerii) pe umeri si sa port cardiganul cu spatele in fata. Aveti nevoie bineinteles de bolduri pentru a le fixa pe pozitie si de un centimentru pentru a masura ca ambele sunt pozitionate simetric. In rest, le coaseti astfel incat sa nu se vada ata pe fata si gata.

Rezultatul este foarte dragut, modern si asa stiti sigur ca acum aveti o piesa personalizata pe care nu o veti mai intalni pe alte 100 de persoane.

Daca va place si v-am inspirat sa incercati si voi acasa, m-as bucura daca v-ati poza si mi-ati arata rezultatul. Daca aveti alte intrebari nu va sfiiti sa mi le lasati in sectiunea de comentarii sau sa imi trimiteti un mail.

[EN] The only thing I’ve done was to sew these silver lace applications on shoulders, and you only need some pins and a centimeter to make sure they are positioned symmetrically. The result is very nice, modern and for sure you now have a  personalized piece that you know it won’t be worn by other 1000 people.

If you like it and if I inspired you to try it too, I would love if you would take pictures and show me the result. If you have any questions please write them in comments section or send me an email.
