Time: 2 Hours

Difficulty level: Simple

What You Will Need:

  • Tshirt

Steps:

  1. I was inspired by this awesome graphic T I mined from a corporate thrift store in my neighbourhood. Originally they were going to be panties but I decided that wasn’t quite cheeky enough for this find.

  2. I started by cutting the tshirt open at the seams to create flat pattern pieces.

3. I marked my pattern on the right side so that I wasn’t having to constantly flip it back and forth to make sure I wasn’t cutting through the graphic.
