I’ve been obsessed with graphic tees, naturally, especially Marc Jacob’s vertical striped one and Jcrew’s horizontal striped tee. And this top may be one of the easiest and affordable graphic tees you can make. Just a few pieces of tape and fabric paint and done!
top: thrifted/refashioned (tutorial below) pants+hat: h&m shoes: forever 21
painter’s tape or freezer paper
optional (if sewing tee smaller): sewing machine, thread, needle, pins, scissors
OPTIONAL (if you are sewing a tee shirt smaller)…if you are just wanting to paint then skip to step 5!
1+2. Cut neckline by aligning side seams and shoulder seams and cutting off the ribbing. Then hem the neckline by sewing the edge under at least a half inch.
3. Cut off the sleeve ends if you want them to be shorter.
4. Roll the ends twice, then tack needle and thread or sewing machine.
5. take off a few rows. I just eyeballed it, but you can measure if you need.
6. Paint and let dry!
7. Take off the tape once all dry. Done!
