Hello all I hope your are enjoying the beginnings of fall! Sorry for the long absence. As you may or may not know, I started grad school At Columbia College in Chicago and to say that it is taking up most of my time would be an understatement! So…if my posts are far and few between lately you will know why. No fear though, I’m still here and still blogging, I just don’t have as much free time to diy. Any ways I have this t-shirt DIY that I actually made quite a while ago and just never got around to posting. It’s quite simple if you have a sewing machine and a shirt you don’t mind ripping apart. I got the idea from this awesome diy blog Trash to Couture.
All you need is:
- a t-shirt
- seam ripper
- sewing machine plus pins, scissors etc.
- lace or crocheted trim. (Mine is from Joanne’s Fabric)
First cut the very edge off of the sides of the shirt including the sleeves. Don’t cut too deep, you want your shirt to still cover you. measure out how much trim you will need before you but it. Mine took about 3′ for both sides. you want to lay the open shirt out and measure from the bottom of the front to the bottom of the back. after you buy your trim pin in onto the shirt edge and sew it in place.
Next you want to sew the front and back together again but remember to leave a whole for your arm. I would leave a good sized hole so the shirt flows. And there you go!
