DIY Heart Cutout T-Shirt

Recreate the look with Hanna's DIY Heart Cutout T-Shirt tutorial:

How would you describe your style?

I think my style is constantly evolving, but I guess I do have some signature lines to my style, that haven't changed fo years and that probably never will. I like simple and classic pieces with a hint of retro and romantic to them. I love pretty dresses and cute cardigans, but I wear a lot of pants in my everyday outfits. Mostly simple skinny jeans paired with a cute top and a cardigan. 

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

My favorites change constantly. I keep finding new things I'd forgotten about in my closets and then all of a sudden I can't remember what I wore before that. I think this heart cutout t-shirt is actually one of my current favorites. I'm not a t-shirt kind of gal usually, but the heart shape makes it just cute and romantic enough for my style. It's perfect! And, I acquired my first pair of skinny jeans a couple of months ago (yes, my first pair) and they've come my favorite pair ever.

Who are your style icons?

That's a hard question. I don't think I have style icons per se, but I do admire people who have their distinct style and can carry themselves gracefully. I love when a woman know her worth and is confident in her style. 

Do you have any favourite designers?

I wouldn't say I have any favorites, I like a lot of designers' work. I like Estonian young eco-conscious designers who make their collections from cast off materials. That's very inspiring.

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

I rarely buy new clothes. Once a year I do the sin of going into H&M. I always feel guilty afterwards because of their production methods, but since I'm a student on a budget and I don't have time to make all my clothing myself, I have to get a few basics for cheap. 

Do you make or customise your outfits?

Most of my clothing and shoes is thrifted and refashioned by me. I used to make a lot of my clothing from scratch, but I quickly became hoarding new fabric, which I didn't have time to turn into clothing. So I turned to thrifting and refashioning. I still make garments from scratch from time to time, but I mostly use materials I already have.

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

I have a series on my blog called "Wardrobe reinvention", which has taught me a lot about mixing up my outfits. I think you should have fun with your clothing and be really creative about how you wear it. A skirt can be worn not only as a skirt and you can mix up a dull outfit by putting your sweater on backwards. Accessories are great for adding some personality to any outfit. It's all about trying new things and having a lot of fun.
