It’s Friday and I’m feeling great. I’ve been washing and cleaning the house like a mad woman, that’s what you get when you leave for 3 weeks. There are dust bunnies everywhere. Ugh
Let’s throw some DIY fun into the mix. I have a closet full of T-shirts that I plan on cutting up. A few were too cute to pass up, some I outgrew. Today we are addressing this problem. My favorite shirt has a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on the front of it. I brought it at a skate shop that was going out of sale. The shirt does nothing for my figure, but we can change that with a few simple, or not so simple, cuts.
I found this tutorial at www.daretodoityourself.blogspot.com and I had to try.
Draw horizontal Lines on the back of the shirt using a ruler all the way to the bottom of the shirt
Draw to vertical lines down center of the shirt
Draw a horizontal lines on center of shirt
Cut the first horizontal lines to the first centerlines on both sides of shirt
Cut the center lines
Stretch shirt, pulling sides
Braid center strips
Take second strip loop under first strip and pullover do this all the way to the bottom of the shirt
Use a needle and thread to secure the end trim excess fabric
Cut neckline, stretch it
Cut sleeves and stretch them
Wear your shirt with pride!
I also found a few other projects I’m dying to complete. I’ll keep you guys updated on my upcoming projects.
Do you remember this trench coat from kill bill? I do and I want it now! I’m going to start looking for a trench coat, get it fitted to my liking, then I’ll try not to ruin it by drawing all over it. This girl makes everything look so simple.
