Tutorial – Your favorite band strapless t-shirt and other two t-shirt recons.

In this post I’ll explain how to do strapless t-shirt like this:

DIY - Dandy Warhols strapless t-shirt

1 – First, I used a normal and big red t-shirt and one of my strapless t-shirts to do the pattern. Many people think that you have to do a tube in fabric to do a strapless t-shirt. But taking your pattern from another t-shirt, you will be sure that your new t-shirt will fit you perfectly.

For that, I put one over the other and I marked my pattern with pins.

2 – Then, I sew the pattern:

3 – To paint the drawing in the t-shirt, I transfer it printing it a sheet and putting this sheet over the fabric. Then, I rubbed the sheet with alcohol. That way, the ink is transferred to the fabric. Then I used a pen (special for fabric) because is cheap and accurate.

4 – Finally, I decorated it with a lace ending. It’s not elastic, so it’s important to take well the measure over your chest.
