DIY SATIN TUBE TOP

Who’s still at the beach? Lucky you! Really. This Summer, at stake with the renovation of our new house, we haven’t had the opportunity to leave for a real vacay. I mean, being at home doing nothing all day is itself a vacay, but you know…the sand, the sea, etc…You got it. Hoping for a weekend away asap, I want to show you a project I made few days ago to spice up my August plans: a satin tube top that’s already a favourite in my closet. Cause creativity never goes on holiday! // Chi è ancora in spiaggia? Fortunate voi! Davvero. Quest’Estate, con la ristrutturazione della casa nuova in ballo, non siamo riusciti a partire per una vera vacanza. Insomma, stare a casa tutto il giorno a fare niente è già di per sé vacanza, ma sapete…la sabbia, il mare, ecc…Ecco. Sperando in un weekend via il prima possibile, vi voglio mostrare ciò che ho realizzato pochi giorni fa per dare una botta di vita ai miei programmi d’Agosto: un top in raso, che è già un preferito nel mio armadio. Perché la creatività non va mai in vacanza!

When I make fashion DIYs, I usually use fabrics like cotton
or linen, practical, affordable and easy to sew. But, this time, I would make something
more luxurious, to show you (and myself) that even a DIY can reach that expensive/bought factor.
It’s all about which fabric you use and this is why I checked Tissura for the most inspiring ones.
Their luxury fabrics are simply amazing and, browsing through their website, I decided to go for satin. The silk satin fabrics section totally got me!

Quando realizzo abiti fai da te, solitamente uso tessuti
come cotone e lino, pratici, non costosi e facili da cucire. Questa volta, però, volevo creare
qualcosa di più elegante, per mostrare a voi (e a me stessa) che anche un DIY può apparire
costoso ed acquistato in negozio. Sta tutto in quale tessuto si sceglie ed ecco perché ho
dato un’occhiata a Tissura per la giusta ispirazione. I loro tessuti di lusso sono semplicemente
stupendi e, girando un po’ nel sito, ho deciso di optare per il raso. La sezione silk satin
mi ha completamente rapita!

You Need // Vi occorre:

– A piece of satin. // Del raso.

– Needle and thread. // Ago e filo.

– Scissors. // Forbici.
– Measuring tape. // Metro.

How to // Come procedere:

1)

First, measure your chest circumference just above the breast and the height of your chest.
Cut two pieces of satin with height=your chest height (plus 2 cm) and lenght=the half of the
measured circumference (plus 4 cm). // Per prima cosa, misurate il vostro busto appena
sopra il seno (circonferenza) e l’altezza del busto stesso. Poi tagliate due pezzi di raso,
con altezza=altezza del busto (più 2 cm) e larghezza=metà circonferenza (più 4 cm).

2)

Sew the hem on the two long sides of both of the satin pieces. // Cucite gli orli dei due

lati più lunghi di entrambi i pezzi di tessuto.

3)

Superimpose the two satin pieces, with the front sides on the inside. Then sew them together,

leaving 1,5 cm from the sides. // Sovrapponete i sue pezzi di raso, con le parti anteriori

rivolte all’interno. Poi cuciteli insieme, lasciando 1,5 cm da entrambi i bordi.

Doing like this the top will be 2 cm larger than your chest. This is because I would

show you an easy DIY without zip or buttons and satin is not as stretchy as cotton, so

you can wear it and breath at the same time 😀 // Facendo così il vostro top sarà più

largo del vostro busto di 2 cm. Questo perché volevo mostrarvi un DIY facile, senza

zip o bottoni ed il raso non è elastico come il ctone, quindi in questo modo potrete

indossarlo e respirare allo stesso tempo 😀

4)

Turn it and…voila! // Rigiratelo e…voilà!

I love the result, it’s elegant and basic at the same time. Something so easy to wear in many occasions (weddings, for example! When we never know what to wear!). I matched it with my favourite silk pants and pink sandals, for a ton sur ton effect. The women’s fabrics section on Tissura is

so full of beautiful fabrics that I’ll surely find out other inspiring pieces for my future creations!

//

Adoro il risultato, elegante e semplice allo stesso tempo. Qualcosa che può essere indossato

in tante occasioni (come i matrimoni, quando non sappiamo mai cosa mettere!). Io l’ho

abbinato ai miei pantaloni in seta preferiti e dei sandali rosa, per un effetto ton sur ton. La sezione

tessuti da donna di Tissura è talmente ricca di meraviglie che troverò sicuramente ancora

ispirazione per dei progetti fai da te futuri!

    • Grazie mille, ragazze! Gentilissime!!!

  • It really looks way more expensive than it actually was, I would have never guessed you made it yourself. Oh, and I am currently on a beach holiday! But I feel your pain, we did the whole house thing last year and while being very stressful it was so worth it in the end.
