You might have noticed the new DIY section by now. We want to inspire and encourage you to make things yourself. Stephen has sent us the first reply with a picture of the drape shirt he made. To make this shirt you need a little experience. The crown is very easy to make.

The rest of my wardrobe is about 50% Vivienne Westwood and the rest is thrifed, I really appreciate how Vivienne cuts her cloth from twisted fly’s on trousers to off centre necks on shirts and tops!”
