MADE: DAMIEN HIRST


I have long been a fan of Damien Hirst. When I found these oversized brads in the scrapbook section.... I immediately thought of Hirsts famous dot paintings. 

Best part about this shirt? You'll be able to take out the brads and still wear the shirt. With just the eyelets or you could swap out the colors. 
1. Gather up supplies, I got everything at Michaels 
2. Mark where the brads will go. Mine are spaced one inch 
3. Poke a hole in the shirt 
4. Sandwich the eyelet together through the shirt. 
1. Hammer the eyelet together with the eyelet tool 
2. Do the same for all the marked spots 
3. Poke the brad through the eyelet and fold out the prongs 
4. Fill all the eyelets with random colors 

Few tips for this shirt:
Use and "no iron" or "wrinkle free" shirt, so you don't have to worry about ironing around all the eyelets.
Take out all the Brads and hand wash the shirt. 
The grommets are hammered on... but I wouldn't chance running it through the wash. 
I have not had an issue with the brads being uncomfortable, if you have a metal allergy i'd recommend an under shirt.

MADE: SLEEVE 2.0

This DIY was too easy not to make a few variations... This time I went with a sheer Metallic. 
Pulling inspiration from Raf's S/S2013 Dior Collection

Again you can totally hand sew this if you don't have a sewing machine. 
1. Mark the sleeves 
2. Cut off Both sleeves 
3. Cut off the cuff 
4. Cut open the seam on the sleeve. You'll use this for a pattern 
1. Lay the sleeve out over the fabric and cut it out. Add a little seam allowance 
2. Fold the sleeve in half and sew the seam closed 
3 Turn the sleeve right side out, slide the cuff upside down on the sleeve. Zig Zag stitch it closed, stretching the cuff as you go so it gathers the sleeve. 
4.Turn the shirt inside out. slide the sleeve inside the shirt, the sleeve should be right side out. Stitch all around the arm hole. 
Special thanks to Geof for the pictures

MADE: SLEEVE

Christopher Bailey sent some lust worthy metallics down the S/S2013 Burberry Prorsum runway. Making it a huge trend this spring. 
 Here's a really easy Burberry inspired T-shirt re-fashion 
You could hand sew this if you don't have a sewing machine. 

 I made this shirt for about $15, you could do it for less if you use a shirt you already have.
1. Mark the sleeves 
2. Cut off Both sleeves 
3. Cut off the cuff 
4. Cut open the seam on the sleeve. You'll use this for a pattern 
1. Lay the sleeve out over the fabric and cut it out. Add a little seam allowance 
2. Fold the sleeve in half and sew the seam closed 
3 Turn the sleeve right side out, slide the cuff upside down on the sleeve. Zig Zag stitch it closed, stretching the cuff as you go so it gathers the sleeve. 
4.Turn the shirt inside out. slide the sleeve inside the shirt, the sleeve should be right side out. Stitch all around the arm hole.
