Yay for my first DIY in a long long time. Now I’m not really the type of girl that buys knockoffs or anything like that when I don’t have the money or the guts to get the real thing, but I love a DIY every now and then. So here’s my take on the Céline half cotton, half denim shirt.

You’re gonna need a cotton shirt, a denim shirt, scissors, a sewing machine and some good music on the background to get this done.
Cut off the sleeves of both the cotton and the denim shirt. Keep the sleeves of the denim one and the cotton shirt. Throw away the cotton sleeves and the denim shirt. Or if you want to be that ‘green’ girl, make two.
Turn the denim sleeves inside out en fold them over the cotton shirt (not folded inside out!).
Sew all the parts together.
Take a deep breath (you made it!) and wear the result immediately.

  4. Erg leuk gedaan!!!

    ZO heb ik laatst ook een spijkerjasje tot gilet gemaakt en de boorden gebruik ik nu als armband, geeft een heel leuk effect!

  5. You did a great job!

  6. YAAAY that’s plain awesome!! Great idea, If someone knows how to sew that’s just so simple and cool!! Paying tribute to my favorite house but with low cost. Like you said, I’m not usually in favor to knockoffs but it’s ok to break one’s rules when it’s about smthing creative!

  7. Very nice DIY ! I totally agree not to buy the real piece at a stunning price when you can make it with pleasure on your own !

  22. Love it, but where did you get the denim blouse? it’s perfect! x

  23. I think you should have kept the rest of the denim shirt and make a denim vest out of it. That would have suited your style!

  24. Wow! I love it, that’s so cool and I’m really impressed by the handy-work. I’m thinking about doing the same, thanks for this DIY guide. You’re great!

  25. I don’t really like knockoffs, it’s not my cup of tea. But, I do love DIYs & this is a great idea.
