I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

DIY Scarf-print kaftan dress, a collaboration project with Styleslicker

Head on here to see the complete tutorial

Kaftan dress – Park & Cube x Styleslicker DIY. Nude shoes – Zara. Bag – Bottega Veneta. Watch – GUESS Rose gold

I realised the only time Kit and I join hands to collaborate is when we’re both hunched over her bowl of phô fishing out red meat so I can gobble it up like a bear. We’re also DIY enthusiasts and happen to share the opinion that if you need glue-gun to attach fabric onto fabric then it’s not DIY – it’s pre-school craft, and don’t get us started with stapling shit to shit. She’s a trained pattern cutter with ninja scissor skills, I’m a webdesigner sensitive to misaligned pixel – in a nutshell we’re both just anal and you wouldn’t want us as mothers or wives (sorry hubz). So we decided to team up to do a few DIY projects that might be educating in terms of garment construction and produce end-results that you might actually wear more than once. Remember this H&M panther scarf? Turns out there’s a lot more ways to transform it with just a few tools at home – for this one you don’t even need a sewing machine – check out the tutorial here to make your own scarf-print kaftan dress!

Check back often or tune in for the next one!

  28. I’m not one for mad sewing skills but this looks like something I could actually do!! Totally going to H & M for a big silk scarf.

  29. Very nice!

  30. Great scarfs, beautiful colors,love your tutorials. Too bad it’s not useful for me until summer ;) you are lucky to have such a weather! I am lucky to have a chance to visit Hermitage museum (great shoots in yours)), but our weather is too cold, you have to wear all that things : tights, coats, but I don’t actually mind))

  31. So simple and effective, fabric so expensive and you can get some great vintage scarfs cheap.

  32. This is really stylish! Love it.

  33. ayy_ayy

    i love this one. :)
    and thank God it doesn’t need any sewing machine.

  35. “Kit, is this one art too?”

  56. Diana M.

    Great project! Love silk scarves and here is another idea for easy DIY with silk scarves http://bit.ly/QI4NRB

  57. Oh, that’s absolutely gorgeous.

  58. Wow! That tutorial is great, simple and easy to follow; The article it self is very interesting! and the suggestions of pieces that can go together with the dress is perfect! One thing though is you should just make sure you did it all correctly and double checked the “quality” or else……..
    This is a great idea, when ever I feel care free or even super stressed b/c of work, I just want to feel free! I want to wear something to loose, or if possible to fly which is impossible. xD
    Thank you for this post!
