(Kimono – DIY me; Shorts – vintage; Singlet top – Supre; Wedges – H&M; Jewellery – Sportsgirl, Diva, General Pants, self-made DIY & vintage)

I mentioned the other day on twitter that I was ready for a good ol’ DIY sesh and here is the result – my first “drapey sheer oversized kimono jacket thingo” (the exact words I used to describe it to my mum when I rocked up at her place and demanded she teach me to how to draft a pattern for it). For a beginner pattern-maker, I am pleased with my little kimono and am looking forward to making more, perhaps in a burnout velvet with fringing if I dare get confident.

The incredibly hot weather here has been causing havoc for me so this is a pretty simple outfit – I sensed a potential overkill of the leopard print (shoes, peekaboo bra and hair band) but then, I’ve never thought that too much leopard was a bad thing. Unless perhaps you’re Paris Hilton. Then it is.

Anyway, Chase took these photos down the end of our street this evening- I feel lucky that we live only 15 minutes from the CBD yet still by the bay. Especially on days like this!

    Love the material you used for the kimono. You definitely didn’t overkill with the leopard print; the three pieces are subtle enough to work together without being overwhelming.
