DIY: Top With 3D Flowers
For me the most beautiful clothes are these, that have extraordinary cut, embroidery, sequins, laser cut decor or 3D effects. First reason for that is my experience in retail (when you are working with clothes every day, it is logical that with time it is harder and harder to surprise me and I unintentionally start to seek something different), secondly, when I see an original piece of cloth, I see and appreciate the hard work that hides behind it. It is a slow fashion, that fascinates me, I guess... But if you can't afford all these original pieces seen in the shop windows and you are dying to wear something very special, then Do It Yourself! :)
3D petals are already several seasons a very beloved decorating motive by fashion designers. Giambattista Valli, Chanel, Elie Saab, Jenny Packham, Delpozo and many other fashion houses and designers love a magical beauty of 3D petals, that step by step are transformed into flowers, blooming meadows, forests or butterflies...
I took my inspiration for this DIY from this amazing Kaviar Gauche F/W 2015/16 collection (You can see it here) and works of designer duo Kristi Andress. So now, let's take a look how I made this top with 3D flowers. :)

If you are patient enough, you can cut similar petals by yourself. Take a look at the video tutorial below![/caption]

And never forget, - you don't have to spend hundreds to look stylish! Just take a look at your wardrobe and critically judge what can you make out of your old clothes before you buy another cheap and worthless dress, shorts or pants, made in poor factories in Bangladesh...
