Overalls with shorts, or should I say “shortalls” (pronounced shôrt-ôls, hence the title) have been in style for quite some time lately and I’m so glad that this trend came back. They give off the perfect sense of effortlessness (is that even a word?) and are so comfy and cute to wear. I’ve been looking for the perfect pair that was affordable yet fit me well for a really long time and these ones from Forever 21 fit the bill perfectly. I absolutely love them so if you’re looking for a pair of shortalls, be sure to check them out!

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you’d know that I seriously love kimonos. They’re so easy to toss on as a coverup or pair them with a crop top and denim shorts and you’ve got a super cute yet comfy outfit. It’s the perfect piece for spring, summer, and the beginning of fall. Depending on the fabric, kimonos could be all-out bohemian or more on the street style side. They’re just a wardrobe staple everyone should have at least one of.

Today I’ll be showing you all how to make your own from scratch! You’ll be cutting the sleeves separately and then sewing them in, opposed to just sewing the sides of a rectangular piece of fabric (ie “DIY Kimono From a Scarf”), but I find that this way makes a more flattering and less boxy kimono that flows better. It’s super easy and while it does involve sewing, you could easily finish this project in an afternoon. Plus it’ll look totally store bought!

This tutorial is revised version of THIS DIY I posted last year. I rewrote the instructions and took new photos so you guys could follow along better :) Hope you enjoy!
