Guest Post: Bow- Back T-Shirt

9:00 AM



Hi there! I'm Donatella and I blog over at inspiration&realisation - the place where I share my "obsessive crafting disorder"

I'm so happy to be here today at chica es artistica, thanks so much Maggie for inviting me over!

Would you like a great "wow-factor" t-shirt 
with about 20 minutes of work?
You've been served!

inspiration&realisation
I made it last year and sure enough I'm going to wear it 
over and over again this summer :)

It all begun with some internet browsing, and when I look for t-shirt inspiration,
the  Red Valentino label is a great source. ... 
Yeah, a bit excessive price tags, agreed.
This shirt was 255$... now on sale @ 178.50 on net-a-porter.com. 
What a joke!

I had everything on hand:
* a grey t-shirt
* some black mesh 
* a small piece of black silk for the bow
* my sewing machine

click on picture to magnify 

* cut the back of the t-shirt in the middle, leaving about 3" at the top uncut
* round the edges (optional, the original doesn't have round edges)
* cut a piece of black mesh in a sort of triangular shape with a round base (the two extra parts sticking out at the bottom won't be necessary if you don't round the edges)
* place the mesh inside the shirt and pin the sides onto the side of the cut 
* trim the excess mesh underneath 
* make a bow and pin it with a safety pin (so you can easily remove it to wash your shirt)

... probably even less then 20 minutes, right?

xox, d.
