Le Blog de Sushi: DIY bandage mini outfit

{ DIY bandage mini outfit }

So, last night I had a go at making myself a hot pink bandage mini, similar to the one I featured in the collage in my last post. It turned out quite well considering it was the first time I've used a zip and wasn't working from a pattern. I want to do a remake though, with two side seams and more stretch (very useful for when you want to sit down!).





♥ DIY cavour print tee
♥ Cotton On asymmetrical knit
♥ Sportsgirl leather hooded jacket
♥ DIY bandage mini skirt
♥ Mimco turnlock bag
♥ Scooter satin oxfords

And some good news! This should be the last post with crappy quality photos because I'm buying the Canon Powershot SX10!

That camera looks pretty. My photos are bad also, I just have a Nikon Coolpix that is about a year and a half old. What made you choose that camera?

I also need a good space in my house for taking photos which I currently do not have! Oh, I could also use photoshop on my computer.

ARGHHHHH! Your skirt looks cute :)

stef - Yay thanks x Sushi

kittentails - Oh well I did a bit of research and from the reviews I read it seemed to be one of the best ones in its price bracket ($500). I much prefer taking photos outside but hate getting wet when it's raining haha x

Neira - Thanks. The tee is another version of the Cavour shirt I printed (I wanted something a bit more subtle than the huge CC's over my chest :p ) x Sushi

auxpaysdesmerveilles, betty & Stacy - Thanks very much! x

Wow, a good camera will make all the difference! I can't afford a new one but the digital camera I am currently using will have to suffice!

Love that bandage skirt, it's amazing for a DIY!

Stain On My Red Shoes - Aw thanks so much :D x

La Couturier - Ah ok I might do that when I do the remake - I had no idea how this one would turn out so I didn't take photos of the (extremely haphazard) process :p I'll let you know! x Sushi

Oh wow, you're very talented Sushi! Did you add side zip? The shorter length looks way cuter than the original!

You are so good at sewing!! I always mess up. (Like last night, I hand sewed a bag together for an hour, and then realized that one piece of fabric was inside out. So I had to take it allll apart. D: )
That looks really cute
