La customización de una camiseta debe ir acorde con el estilo de la misma. En este caso, no había mejor elección que customizar la camiseta con flecos hechos a partir de sus propias mangas. Así tenemos un cowboy style acorde con el print de la camiseta.
When you customize a garment, it must be appropriate to its style. In this case, the best choice was customizing the tee with fringes made out of its own sleeves. This way I got a cowboy style that matches with the print of the t-shirt.
New Year’s Eve is for me a perfect excuse to make a new dress. And that’s what I used to do every year. This year my intention was use one of my tops and make a skirt similar to this one, but between my fabrics I found this piece of tulle that was part of another dress years ago.
These days I feel romantic. This is really weird, because I’m the least romantic person in the world. And most of the time, this is reflected in my dress style. I like to wear sexy or sport clothes. But sometimes I like to add romantic accessories to my style. Maybe because I feel more naive, or more feminine? And why? Am I in love? Or simply, it will have to do with my hormonal cycles?
Anyway, I’ve been doing flowers with the remains of fabric that had. I followed two different techniques, very easy both, and with different results.
Jesus! This man has magical scissors!
Long time ago, a hairdresser gave me a black and white gym bag, very useful but bored.
I decided customize it with some sequins and this picture:
Why the piratebay’s logo? Well, here in Spain, and in other European countries, we pay a special tax whenever we buy an electronic device. It’s like a kind of fine for making ilegal copies of music and filmes. Since I must pay this tax… I must be a pirate!
That said, go ahead with the work!
The process is simple: I didn’t dare to stick the sequins directly in the bag, so I sticked them in a piece of fabric and then, I stick the fabric to the bag. As the bag is mainly black, the piece of fabric is black.
I used contact adhesive, because is the best to stick fabric and plastic. And believe, the sequins are well stuck!
And, of course, I didn’t stuck the sequins one by one! Jesus! Never do that! Because anyway it’s going to be a looong work. Spread the glue on the fabric, and then put the sequins on. It’s supposed that you must put glue in both sequins and fabric, but I only put it on the fabric and it worked.
Here is the final result:
In this post I’ll explain how to do strapless t-shirt like this:
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.
In this picture you can see the result:
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.
