DIY BRANDY MELVILLE CHIYO BRALETTE

DIY Brandy Melville Chiyo Bralette

Hello and welcome to my blog!

So summer is coming up and the wetaher is getting super warm outside, so obviously those crop tops and racer-back tops are making their way out of the closet. Brandy Melville sell a really cute bralette, the Chiyo Bralette, for $19, so I thought I would make one myself, for as little as $5!!!

What you will need:

a brallete (from primark)
black thread
a needle
scissors
and some elastic

So let’s get started.

Start by cutting off the back of your brallete.
Cut as close to the seam as possible for a cleaner finish.

Then, measuring the elastic around your back, cut the elastic into strips.

I decided to cut three, rather than the original six, I just prefered the look of it. You can obviously do as many as you like.

Then just sow your strips of elastic across the back.

Once you have done that, you can cut two smaller sized elastic strips to be sewn on vertically.

If you want you could add some straps over the shoulders, but I prefered the strapless look.

And it’s so simple!! Now you can wear your super cheap and totally cute bralette!!

I just love floral patterns, polka dots and pastel colours, especially during the summer, where you can just wear and buy the cutest dresses ever! I have been so in love with Ariana’s style and tried to find where she got them. The dress she wore on the Ellen Show is by far one of my favourites, but as it is a Dolce & Gabanna dress (shown above), which was priced at $627.00 during the sale, I tried to find some cheaper options.

Ariana Grande, Nickelodeon starlet, has such an amazing sense of style, totally cute and girly and now, totally stealable. Tehe 🙂 Her clothes are just so adorable

She wears quite a lot of florals and polka dots (like myself) , always looking so cute. I love her style so much and thought I would show you ways to steal her style, which btw is really affordable. So here we go….
