skeletals and webs.





Kittens, it's DIY time! I made a skull cut out shirt in approximately 8 minutes and I ADORE IT. First, I dug through every single space in my house that could possibly have a potential shirt for me to thrash. (I happen to find an oversized black one, but it has a Sony logo on it...such is life.)Then, I laid it out on a flat surface and with a pencil I lightly drew two eyes, a nose, and teeth that I could cut out so there would be holes. After that, I simply snipped the swatches of fabric out of the holes I drew and voila, skull skully shirt!
What is the spider web like thing clinging to the rest of my body, you may ask? I also attempted to make a "shredded T-shirt" which took FOREVER, but it is probably one of the most eye-catching shirts I own to this date. All I did to make it was rip the seem at the bottom of the shirt and then pull the threads apart until you get the effect you want. Might I add, I worked on it every day in my Physical Education class while my teacher was blabbing about the rules of gym games. Best investment of my time. Ever.
" Why would you spend your class time hunched over like a weaving grandma, just to kill a perfectly fine T-shirt?!" (Words from my beloved mother:))

Good idea on these DIY projects!

Especially since they can be a bit pricey elsewhere.

Hey,

what a creative idea & great realisation!

The pieces are actually wearable, fashionable and very trendy now but I would style them differently. I`d wear the pieces seperatly and pair them with contrasting shapes. I`d wear the torn shirt to grey skinny jeans and the webs over a skinny dress in nude tones.

Best, Jenny / Boheme Noir
