|Olive chiffon shirt with collar tips|
This week is a continuation using a slightly different collar tip that I bought from ASOS. In the last post I mention a couple of places where you can order collar tips. The tips don't all work the same. The ones I used last week were bent onto the collar with a pair of pliers. This week, I use screw on tips, which is pretty handy coz I can switch them from shirt to shirt. See another blogger do something similar - by following this link.

In - this - feature I show how adding anglaise or lace to a shirt creates a romantic feel.
Another easy way to add a touch of class to a simple white shirt is with a velvet ribbon a la Alexa Chung. See the how-to by following - the link here.

I am seriously tempted to try add a band of gathered white cotton to create a peplum effect on one of my plain white shirts. You can see how I made a peplum top - here.
Or how about cutting the bottom off each sleeve and adding gathered white cotton to make a bell shaped sleeve?

Or you could add elbow patches in a fun fabric?
DIYing is so much fun and the options are limitless to customise and up cycle or restyle clothing.
The clothes in the photo at the top of this post are all from previous DIY's. You can find the skirt - in this post. The belt can be found - here - and the how-to for the bracelets is in - this link.
There are plenty more ideas to reinvent old clothes and turn anything from wool to wire into fashion items in the - DIY Fashion Gallery.
On the top right of this page is a link to the Greenie facebook page and if you fancy these ideas, you may want to give Greenie a "like".
Till next week, happy DIY-ing.
