Kühl Inspiration

Recently I did some snoop shopping on the Kühl website. Here are a few things that jumped into my hypothetical shopping cart.  For the cost I’ve multiplied the $US value by 1.5 to get the rough cost of what they retail for in $AUD.

The fabric and pattern notes are my first thoughts on what I’d use to make the item. The fabric may differ from the original. If I make a knock-off, I’ll try to remember to add a link to the post
