Wow! I can barely believe it- I'm at 50 posts! While that might not sound like much, I'm pretty chuffed; considering most other attempts I made at blogging ended after around 4 posts :P
So, hip hooray ^_^
Five Easy Ways to Customise Your Shirts!
1. Go off the shoulder.
I don't even have words for how easy it is to change the entire look of a dull shirt, just by cutting off a tight neckline, and wearing it slightly to the side. It's one of my favourite things to do when I have a top that doesn't look quite right on me and is damn near impossible to screw up for those who are made nervous by craft ;)
2. Bleach spatter.
I love the look of bleach spatter so much! It doesn't even have to be spatter- I've seen some incredible stuff people have done just by painting bleach onto their clothes. Either way, it's possibly one of the easier ways to funk up your clothes.
Simply take some undiluted bleach, splatter and decorate your DRY clothes to your hearts content, then rinse with cool water until it runs clear. Leave to dry + viola!
3. Slashes + safety pins.
I really really REALLY hate people who spend money on clothes that are pre-ripped and slashed. I mean, SERIOUSLY guys? It wouldn't kill you to save a dime by doing it yourself AND looking unique!
Some people think heavily ripped and slashed clothing can be a little intense- I know I've had a few worries of accidentally flashing someone through my tears. Solution? A packet of safety pins from a craft shop will only cost a few dollars. Pinning together slashes looks bitchin' and is totally customiseable. Have fun! Take your craft rage out on your shirt! :D
Something that is on a rise back to popularity; fringes! I totally dig the way a fringed shirt feels when it's blowing in a breeze + dancing over my skin. All you really need is some sharp scissors and patience: cut long, even strips in to where ever you desire the fringing effect. Try sewing strips of materials to ribbon + sewing onto shirts- the layering is awesome!
5. Woven slashes.
This is not the easiest thing in the world, so perhaps practise it a few times on some material before giving it a shot on your shirt. The result is definitely worth it, though! An easy to follow tutorial (granted it's for leggings, but the principle is still the same) HERE.
Well? What are you waiting for? Get creating- I want to see what you come up with!
