DIY French Hen Sweater

Recreate the look with Daria's DIY French Hen Sweater tutorial:

How would you describe your style?

My style is still changing and evolving, but in the past years it's been very feminine. I like girly things - I even wear kids clothes sometimes, since I'm petite - and vintage fashion inspires me. 

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

I'd say all of my dresses are my favorites. From the girl who would only wear jeans, I've turned into the girl who only wears dresses - so I value each dress equally, and I often associate them with past events. Vintage pieces that belonged to my grandmother are also very important for me.  

Who are your style icons?

I love Alexa Chung from the celebrities bunch, and then there's a number of fashion bloggers that I adore, like The Clothes Horse, Calivintage, Rosaspina Vintage or All This Happiness. 

Do you have any favourite designers?

I love every collection by Carven, and there are a number of high fashion designers that rarely fail to make me swoon. Out of the more affordable ones, I love Dear Creatures, Twentysevennames, Vivetta or Swedish Hasbeens. 


Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes clothes?

I buy from the high street stores like H&M or Zara, and I do a lot of thrifting. We have quite a variety of second hand shops here! Sometimes I shop online, but it's the high shipping fees that prevent me from going crazy on e-commerce. 

Do you make or customise your outfits?

I've always liked making my own things, but I've mostly made accessories so far. My dream is to be able to make my own clothes, and although I have a sewing machine, I haven't perfected the skill yet. The day I make a dress from scratch will be one happy day. 


Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?  

One thing I like to do is wear handmade accessories - whether they're by local artists or DIY projects. Pins are especially versatile, since you can wear them on anything, from coat to bag. You can also find lovely, unique pieces at flea markets and vintage shops!
