Wardrobe Remix: Dip-Dyed Skirt


reathing new life into old clothes is an art form.  Some people have vision for old clothes being new trends that the rest of us just don’t have.  When I stumbled across A Pair & A Spare blog, I realized just how talented some of these remix masters really are.

Read the description of Geneva, the brains behind this super cool blog: A Pair & A Spare is a chronicle of Geneva’s day-to-day addiction to Do It Yourself fashion, where she shows you how to create the most desirable and on-trend fashion and lifestyle projects with minimal skill. Originally from Brisbane, Australia and now living in Hong Kong, Geneva believes in a sustainable approach to fashion and revels in making old new and on-trend using sewing, beading, studding, refashioning and a host of other projects. Proving that DIY Fashion can complement traditional fashion ideals, Geneva also posts a weekly DIY tutorial over at Harper’s BAZAAR Australia.”

Wow, do I feel like an underachiever.  Luckily, Geneva is nice enough to post easy-to-follow tutorials to teach us her crafty ways.  When I saw the gorgeous lilac dip-dyed skirt she created from an old white skirt, I fell madly enough.  Check out these photos and follow her tutorial to create your own. (Isn’t it perfect for Easter?)
