Hey there!

My name’s Sandy Salierno and I’m a Canadian expat in Ireland. Thanks for visiting!

Let’s get some DIY inspiration…

I love a good vintage sweater. Free pattern’s are easy to find on Ravelry and there’s tonnes in this basic shape. Something like this would be a great investment piece because it’s pretty seasonless when made in a neutral colour.

I like the idea of covering a blazer’s lapel with lace, but I’m not completely sold on the bulkiness of this one. I’d also be tempted to tack it down more because wind can be the biggest outfit enemy out there.

If you can find a good sale and get two or three shirts this would be super easy to make. Level off the bottom of one shirt, then use the bottom of the others to make the ruffle.

I love when I see something and I think, “that would look excellent in black” and then they make it in black.

It’s a classic for a reason.
