DIY shirt

Sooo, I bought this Monki shirt on sale, and I decided I wanted to change it up a bit. It was very long, so i wanted to shorten it and cut off the sleeves for a more summer-y look. Here's a little DIY tutorial on how I did it, hope it inspires you.

I wanted to go for a no-sleeve look, soo


I drew with a pencil how I wanted my shirt to look. I wanted to go for a deep opening on the sides.


Next you start cutting. If you want to rip of the sleeves, you can rip it by the seam. It gives a better result instead of only cutting. If you turn the shirt inside out, you can use a  seam cutter or scissors to cut off the thread and pull it out. Then start ripping when the seams are loose enough. 


So, if you want yours a  bit scruffy and edgy, take a cheese grater and just grate the seems and other areas. (This is a great tip for Denim as well, if you use a cheese grater to rub against the fabric, it gives a scruffy ripped effect)

4. Adjust each side if they're not completely perfect,  and BOOM. you got yo self a nice DIY cut off shirt. PERFECT FOR SUMMER :)

5. OPTIONAL. You can also add studs, patterns and fabric or more holes to the tshirt, giving it a more personal look. I'm thinking of sowing a pattern with colorful thread on the collar. If i can get around to it!

One example :) HAVE FUN!
