A very special Easter celebration (with a DIY, make a new top from a t shirt)

Well, this is a first…..

A DIY from Obsessive Creative Designs

Make a cool top in literally 10 minutes with absolutely NO SEWING AT ALL!!!!!

Are you intrigued???? Well keep reading…….

Now, I know we all, as women, have days of looking in our overstuffed wardrobe and being uninspired which results in the mood of “I have nothing to wear”, and frankly, I think that is our right, am I right??

Well, now I am going to ask you to go searching in your Partner’s wardrobe……..

(You may want to ask first as to whether the item you have chosen is still worn or not hahahah)

Grab an oversized t shirt (the op shop is a great place to go for these too)

and after a few simple cuts, you will have a stylish new top, now just follow my lead and we will get started……

My t shirt is one of my own

I love the print on it and the colour, I just got bored of the shape

Image

 

Lay out your tee flat and make the first cut from under one arm up to the shoulder on the opposite side

Image

 

Image

Cut off the other sleeve

Image

Image

Cut the shoulder seam

Image

Image

Next, measure from your shoulder to a spot under you bust and cut a straight line a few inches into the middle

Image

Make a second cut a few inches down from the first

Image

 

And then another a few inches down for a total of 3 cuts down one side

Image

 

 

 

Cut up the side seam (I like to cut the seam right off) to open up the tee

Image

Simple as THAT, It is DONE!!!

Now to tie it on to yourself

Tie the shoulder strap over oneΒ shoulder

Then simply tie the two other strips together down the side

Image

 

Image

And it is on your body ready to be styled up with something in your wardrobe

Image

So, whatever you have planned for Easter, brunch, Easter egg hunt, bush picnic, you will be feeling fresh with a new top from your existing wardrobe (or should I say Hubby’s shhhhhh)

On Easter morning, throw on some lippy, spray a bit of dry shampoo in your “bed head” hair, put on a pair of jeans or a skirt and your new top and you are good to go!!

Here is how we styled our new tops…..

The girls styled their tops by themselves

And sitting out on our upcycled bed/chair and retro can chair with our handmade cushions I did last week, drinking tea in the garden on this beautiful Good Friday arfternoon with my family (the boys were there in the background) I feel totally blissful!!

HAPPY EASTER

Love Kirsty xx
