Gimme Gimme: Mega Cute Cut-Out TShirts

Ok, sure. You could just go and buy an off-the-rack cold-shoulder top because they are EVERYWHERE right now… but where’s the fun in that? MORE FUN PLEASE. Okay, you got it. Here’s how to customize a tshirt with cut-outs as shown by Ella in The Style Edit.

First up is DIY TSHIRT BOWS

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

  • A t-shirt
  • Scissors
  • Your hands

 

Did we tell you it was simple? It’s so simple! Here we go:

STEP 1

First up cut a strip of fabric from the t-shirt – either from the edge of each sleeve, or from the bottom of the hem. If you take it from the bottom, you can turn a long tshirt into a cropped tshirt. BONUS LEVEL UNLOCKED!

STEP 2

Next take the scissors and cut a straight line across the sleeve, not too far from the shoulder. This will create what’s called a ‘cold-shoulder’ cut out detail.13_image-3

STEP 3

Take your spare piece of fabric and cut the end off it. You need just enough to tie around the bottom of the sleeve, which will create the bow. Tie a small knot and hide on the underside.13_image-4

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR. DID YOU SEE WHAT WE DID THERE?

There’s your mega cute cold-shoulder look in a matter of minutes.

Congratulations! You’ve graduated to level 2 at Cut-Out School: DIY LACE INSERTS13_image-6

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

  • A t-shirt
  • Scissors
  • A4 sheet of card
  • lace
  • Iron on hemming
  • An iron

Slightly more complicated but we’re in this together, peeps.

 

STEP 1

Draw and cut out a shape you like using the cardboard. Ella went for an upside down triangle. But you can do any shape you want!13_image-7

STEP 2

Turn the shirt inside out and place the shape on the back. Trace around it with the pen. We got this…13_image-8

STEP 3

Cut out the shape. It’s easy to cut a hole in the centre of the shape and then cut towards the edges. Pinch and snip.13_image-9

STEP 4

Take the lace and place the cardboard shape on it. Cut around the edges, leaving extra room. Your lace shape should be larger than the cardboard shape. IMPORTANT STEP! Make sure your lace shape is bigger.13_image-10

STEP 5

Take the hem web and iron, and attach the lace to the inside of the shirt.
