I have a long list of summer DIYs, and at the very top of my list was shibori, a Japanese method of tie-dying with indigo dye. It's really the perfect DIY project for a lazy summer afternoon.

I'm super excited about this post, for a few reasons. First,this short-sleeve sweater is inspired by one of my favorite fashion bloggers, Sincerely Jules, whose simple, laidback California style has really appealed to me lately. Second reason I love this DIY project is because it's unbelievably easy, almost so much that I wondered whether it's a substantial enough project to post! It's really just cutting and gluing -- doesn't require any sewing, so it's a DIY-for-all kind of project.
Lastly, this sweatshirt is absolutely PERFECT for an SF resident like me. With our notoriously foggy summers and morning chill, I can't imagine another piece of clothing I'd rather be in when I go out to the farmer's market or just head to brunch. It's cozy yet lightweight, casual yet chic. I feel like this hybrid sweatshirt perfectly represents the city's weather and vibe.Read More
