DIY Boho Patchwork Scarf

Recreate the look with Sonya's Boho Patchwork Scarf tutorial:

How would you describe your style?

Eclectic.  I get lots of hand me downs and people give me all sorts of things- I wear it all!  I love clothing swaps and try on new styles all the time.

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

I live in this 80's jumpsuit my husband's step-mother gave me.  It's from French-Martinique and so comfortable.

Who are your style icons?

Audrey Hepburn's elegance but I also Gwen Stefani's over-the top looks too.   I like feminine.  No menswear for me!

Do you have any favourite designers?

I love everything that Cynthia Vincent designs.  Most of my clothes are from her.  Vivian Westwood and Sonia Rykiel make me swoon but I only have a few of their pieces.

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

I love sample sales, they have great one of a kind handmade pieces that never make it to production.   I avoid the mall at all costs.  I have a weird quirk where if I see someone else wearing something I own, I can't wear it again.

Do you make or customise your outfits?

Mostly, I take vintage pieces and alter them.  I love taking apart different dresses and merging them together to make something new.

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

Don't be afraid of mixing patterns and textures.  It's fun, colorful, and unexpected.   If you've never been to one, go to or host a clothing swap.  Try some looks you wouldn't normally wear.  It's always good to keep your look fresh!
