[i was contemplating between the shirt tucked in or not... now that i look at it i kind of like the tucked in better even though it makes my torso look awkward hahaha <3 the awkward... well this was the final say...]
[cropped denim jacket - Faith 21 ($28), striped tee - old navy ($7 i think, on sale), black Free People skirt - thrifted, black leggings & simple skinny black headband - beauty supply/clothing store, necklace - island plus, big silver ring - charlotte russe ($4), big black jewel heart ring - gift (not visible)]
so while perusing a new blog i found (The Frantic Dreams of You're Modern Day Giant) i came across a DIY she's doing that she got from another blog i follow (Childhood Flames) for this awesomely simple/fun/grungy/did i mention awesome?! shredded tee! here's Camille's version (the simple v-neck, she also does a tank top in her tutorial video)
i was kind of confused on how to start the whole thing but i found this video that really simplifies it for anyone else who wants to try this
- a knitted tee shirt or tank or anything! as long as its knitted (everyone keeps saying this doesn't work on woven fabrics, i have no technical knowledge so im just taking their word for it lolz)... and thats all!
here are my results, it looks almost like a mix between soft lace and cheese cloth... from far away lolz (i tested it out on an old von dutch (ugh) tee i had and when it turned out really well i did it on a t-shirt that i had turned into a muscle beach tank (you know big giant arm holes) down the center of the back... can't wait to wear this at the beach! i wanted it straight down the middle of the back but because of the fabric it veered to the side lolz... still looks kinda cool tho ;) i wanna make one that looks like Camille's, on a simple white v-neck all down the side)
