PRINTED BOWS TIGHTS (DIY)

printed bows tights diy fashion

I can remember perfectly those childhood moments when my mum dressed me and my two sisters
(my brother was still not on plans) for the Christmas Eve with our party dresses.
And those unbearable tights.
Once arrived at my grandparents' home, we put off dresses and started running around
in our wool tights, with no shame and for my mum's joy.
If it was my choice, I'd put off the tights too, but it was Winter, not a good idea.
Yes, because when I think about tights and me as a child, I just remember that I HATED them.
I had to wear them on festivities or worse, on school recitals, maybe dressed up like a flower (my god), 
and I used to spend the whole time adjusting them on my legs and trying to not break in some chairs.
Not so much has changed from that, but at least now I can avoid breaking them after 5 minutes.
I know, I know, tights are so essential for a girl and this is why I force myself to use them
feeling bagged for the whole evening/night and spending hours, before, to smooth perfectly my nails
so that they can't break them, but let me say one thing: 
IF I HAVE TO DO IT, THEN LET ME DO IT COOL.
So, I decided to decorate my tights with bows, so that they look less odious to my eyes.
I like stand printed tights, doing by yourself is so funny and, incredible, makes me wanna
wear them!
The power of DIY.

Ricordo perfettamente quei momenti della mia infanzia, quando mia mamma vestiva me e le mie
due sorelle (mio fratello non era ancora nei piani) per la Vigilia di Natale, con i vestiti da festa.
E con quegli insopportabili collant.
Una volta arrivate a casa dei nonni, ci toglievamo subito i vestiti ed iniziavamo a correre
in giro nelle nostre calze, senza vergogna e per la gioia di mia madre.
Fosse stato per me, mi sarei tolta anche i collant, ma era Inverno, non era una buona idea.
Perché sì, quando penso ai collant e a me bambina, riesco solo a ricordare che li ODIAVO.
Ero costretta ad indossarli alle feste o, peggio ancora, alle recite scolastiche, 
magari vestita da fiore (santo cielo) e passavo tutto il tempo aggiustandole e cercando
di non romperle in qualche sedia.
Non molto è cambiato da allora, ma quantomeno adesso riesco a non romperle dopo 5 minuti.
Lo so, lo so, i collant sono essenziali per una ragazza ed è per questo che mi costringo
ad usarli, sentendomi un insaccato per tutta la sera e passando ore, prima, a limarmi 
le unghie perfettamente così che non possano rovinarli, ma lasciatemi dire una cosa:
SE PROPRIO DEVO FARLO, LASCIATEMELO FARE BENE.
Quindi, ho deciso di decorare le mie calze con dei fiocchi, per farmeli sembrare meno odiosi.
Adoro posso sopportare i collant stampati, realizzarli da me non solo è divertente, ma,
miracolo, mi fa anche venire voglia di indossarli!
Il potere del FAI DA TE.

You need // Vi occorre:

- A pair of sheer tights. // Un paio di calze velate.
- Indelible pen. // Pennarello indelebile a punta fine.
- Paper leaf. // Foglio di carta.
- Chalk. // Gessetto.


How to // Come procedere:

1)
Start drawing on your leaf a bow (about 5 cm / 1,9 in). If you are not able (read= you are too lazy) to, 
you can use mine. // Iniziate disegnando sul foglio un fiocco (di circa 5 cm). Se non siete capaci 
(leggere= siete troppo pigre), potete usare il mio.


2)
Wear your tights and sign with the chalk the point where you want the bow. // Indossate le calze
e col gessetto segnate il punto dove volete il fiocco.
 
3)
Fold the leaf  so that it can fit the width of the tights, insert it and copy the bow you drew
on the point signed with the chalk. // Piegate il foglio in base alla larghezza dei collant, infilatelo
e ricalcate il fiocco che avete disegnato in prossimità del punto segnato col gessetto.


4)
Do it for both sides. // Ripetete anche per l'altra gamba.

5)
Voilà! So pretty, not? // Voilà! Carini, no?

I am wearing the second sweater I chose from Dresslink (here the first).
I think it's simply perfect with my new tights!
I talked about this online shop here and about the huge choice of clothes and accessories they have.
This grey sweater counts for two! I can wear it as a dress or, turning it upside down, as
a sweater with a large soft neck. Two for one price: cool, not?
If you like my sweater and want to shop it, click here!

Qui indosso il secondo maglione scelto su Dresslink (qui il primo).
Penso che sia perfetto con le mie calze nuove!
Vi ho già parlato qui di questo shop online e dell'ampia scelta di vestiti ed accessori offerti.
Questo maglione grigio vale per due! Lo posso indossare come abito corto o, capovolto,
come golf dal morbido ampio collo. Due al prezzo di uno: perfetto, no?

  3. Hahaha it looks like a tattoo! I like the idea. You are very handy. I though the same, I don't like wearing tight but sometimes there's no option...it's cold outside.

    Nice post, looking forward what is the next post about.

  9. I have to admit I'm still not the huge fan of tights and I avoid it to wear them as far as I can :) Thanks for sharing the lovely and funny story of your Christmas outfits - I think you were already as kid very clever that you put the dress away! Thanks for sharing the lovely idea btw, I will keep it in my mind and hopefully it helps me to love tights more :)

  19. You did a remarkable job, I could have sworn before I read the post title that these were store bought. You know I have similar feelings about tights, and I think it does stem from having to wear them when I was younger as well, lol. As I've gotten older though I've started trying to include tights back into my wardrobe as I think there's just something sexy, and classic about them, you know?
