DIY top

The original Tee

Saw this awesome Tee in the men's department at H&M for £3, it is from the Black Book collection. I particularly liked the slogan 'Get a face lift, or just be yourself'. I bought this with the intention of wearing it for my dance class over shorts but was inspired after googling t-shirt customisation methods so got a bit scissor happy...

Here is how I did it, be warned it is mind-numbingly easy...
  • Cut out the hem on the sleeves.
  • Cut the sleeves into thin strips towards the should stopping short of the shoulder seam.
  • 'Roll' the strips in your palms to encourage them to curl.
  • Finally I cut out the collar to give the shirt a more feminine fit.
I think i will wear this as above, over skinny jeans with my new boots, or perhaps tucked in a high waisted skirt or high-waisted jeans!

Any easy t-shirt DIY tips you'd like to share?
