A jersey maxi, screws, bolts, washers, fabriccutting scissors, tailor’s chalk, eyelet punch tool

How to

  1. Use the tailor’s chalk to make a straight line a few inches below the bust. Mark matching points above and below the drawn line; cut along the line.
  2. Take the eyelet punch tool and make holes on the marked points on the front and back of both the separated pieces.
  3. Place a washer on each hole, slip the screw through and take it out on the corresponding hole on the lower half of the dress. Put in another washer and secure it with a bolt. Continue till top and lower half are completely attached in a full circle. With the noir goth trend looming over us this A/W, you have the perfect reason to break in this tough-as-nails dress.

Dupatta Gilet

By Nachiket Barve, fashion designer

You will need

A georgette dupatta, fabric-cutting scissors, tailor’s chalk, measuring tape, tacking pins, ribbon finishing trim, sewing needle, thread

How to

  1. Use the chalk to mark the centre of the dupatta. From the woven end, mark 10” down. On either side of the centre line, mark 8”. At the point where the 8” mark and 10” mark meet, draw an 8” line.
