DIY Fashion: Cut-out Shirt

Hey there fashionistas! What's up? Today's DIY Fashion Challenge is to create a really sweet top! I stumbled across this super stylish shirt a few days ago on this adorable korean-fashion online store. It's totally chic and surprisingly casual and I just love it!

I was really inspired by this item and wondered if I could try and create something similar to it at home. It's really simple and looks great... 

What you'll need:

  • A long-sleeved oversized sweater  of any colour.
  • Something to draw with e.g. chalk, a pencil or a pen.
  • A good pair of scissors.
Here's how you do it:

  1. Place the shirt flat on a surface and iron it.
  2. Draw large circles on the sleeves and shoulders of the shirt.
  3. Carefully cut out the circles with your scissors.
* Optional... Using a sewing machine, tidy up the edges of the circles by folding the circumference of the circles inwards, and sewing over them.

And, voila! You are ready to go!

Take care!
