DIY: Lattice style t-shirt


Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. This week's DIY project is all about the t-shirt. There are tons of ways you can restyle and refashion a t-shirt. One blogger who does an extremely awesome job is Anne from wobisobi. She has an endless list of t-shirt tutorials and my next project will be the t-shirt dress. Anyway I will be showing you all how I made a lattice style t-shirt. You can also use Anne's tutorial

v- neck t-shirt (I used a men's medium)
chalk or pencil
8 mm studs
needle and thread (optional)

Lay out the shirt and with chalk or pencil, draw a straight line across from under the v.
Draw about 11 lines vertically in each shoulder area.
Cut the lines.
Stretch the cut pieces to get a tubular look.
Create your pattern and apply the studs to hold in place. Since I didn't have enough prong back studs, I used needle and matching thread to hold the strings in place. I then applied iron-on studs throughout.  
This project was pretty easy and took about a hour or since I had to hand stitch a few strings together.
Roll the sleeves to give it a more fitting look.
