Lemon Jumper

The aroma and colour of the lemons in our street brought to my mind this jumper I made quite a few years ago. I felt that it was time for it to see the autumn light again.
EL aroma y color de los limoneros en nuestra calle me recordaron a este jersey que hice hace ya bastantes años. Pensé que era tiempo de sacarlo a ver la luz otoñal de nuevo.
The leather of these black boots was peelling off, so I covered them with the sleeves of an old  lacey knitted jumper. I just cut the  sleeves and glued them neatly to the shape of the boots.
La piel de estas botas negras estaba pelándose, así es que las cubrí con las mangas de un viejo jersey. Corté las mangas y las fui pegando cuidadosamente siguiendo la forma de la bota.                                              
 
 Wearing: my own knitted jumper/ Primark skirt- Ebay / patent leather belt and bag-Berlin flea market /  vintage 50s sunglasses/  DIY boots

Cada día me sorprendes más. Lo de las botas es ...GENIAL. Pero eso sólo lo puede hacer una manitas como tú, que lo mismo te haces un precioso chaleco que forras unas botas. Oye , y lo de las tijeras...¿realmente son unas tijeras forradas?

señora Allnut dijo...

cuánta originalidad y cuántas ideas interesantes!: el olor de los limones es de mis favoritos, el amarillo últimamente me atrae mucho, y esas botas restauradas me parecen curiosísimas!, y las tijeras ya el colmo!
besos y gracias por compartir estas ideas!

maya dijo...

Rebosas creatividad por los cuatro costados!!! Las botas me gustan mas que las que tiene Ugg en punto.
Que bien te sienta el amarillo, como alegra el otoño ese color, que no sea solo para el verano.
Tengo debilidad por las faldas con aplicados y la tuya me gusta.

Yellow is a glorious colour on you!
And how creative you are, too, what a nice idea with those boots.
Hope you are enjoying the weekend;)

Laura Tenshi dijo...

How clever to fix your leather boots like that. You know these" socks boots" are very in right now and I've seen a lot of Japanese on street style websites wearing them so how cool you get to make your very own pair. Love the scissors accessory and colors of your outfit. I took a little break from colors today, but I felt so empty without them. I will bring them back asap.

Heather Fonseca dijo...

I love your sweater! Yellow is a color one rarely sees in fashion but it's so happy. Now I want a polka dot yellow sweater too.

Oh I loved to see your interpretation of Roz's idea! And what a fantastic idea for the boots / it now looks like crochet

torber dijo...

es genial la reconversión de las botas me recuerda mucho a los oready-make del gran MArcel Duchamp,...y el collar con las tijeras me encanta por aquí en bristo observo cómo mucha gente lleva sus propios colgantes hechos por ellos,...y hay cosas realmente bonitas que no cuestan dienro y las puedes alcanzar sólo con tu creatividad.

What you've done to those boots is genious! I have a pair I love so dearly, but they are starting to fall apart and the leather coming of is one of the problems. You've just saved my favourite boots! ;-)
