WhatIWore: Who wasn’t smitten with the most Shop Ruche* lookbook? I was especially taken with a black and white number shown with a vintage umbrella… so I made my own! Here’s how:

Supplies:

  • Black Umbrella
  • Ruler + Tailor’s Chalk
  • White Paint (I used Block Ink)
  • Paintbrush

Start by measuring and marking where you’d like your stripes. I opted for 1” stripes, but any combination of thin + thick stripes would look great.

Using a foam brush, apply paint.  I found this block ink in the screen printing section of my local craft store. Any fabric paint will probably work!

I opted to free hand between the marked points. I did buy painters tape, but it didn’t adhere well enough to do the job right.

I love the final look! Next time it pours, you’ll see me singing in the rain!
