Showing a sneaky bit of skin is always a go in our books, especially if it gives your outfit a bit of much needed attitude. And nothing says attitude quite like a skull, right? So we've decided to give the skull cut out t-shirt a go ourselves, to see if we can't put a bit of DIY into DOA.
- A large t-shirt made from stretchy material
- Something to draw with.
Firstly, get a picture off the internet of what you want your skull face to look like. This will become your guide as to where to draw you face on the t-shirt. Once you've decided on a face, lay your shirt flat on the ground and start marking out where your eyes, nose and teeth will be situated on the shirt. It doesn't have to be perfect, because soon, you'll be destroying it with scissors.
Once the outline is done, start cutting out the pattern, being weary not to cut any feature lines of the skull face, such as teeth outlines.
Once the design is cut out, take the strands that are left between each cut and pull them tight, to remove any uneven cuts or left over threads. Be careful not to put too tightly however, as you could break the delicate details of the skulls face.
Now you're ready to wear your DIY heart on your sleeve, or should that be your skull on your back? A perfect edgy addition to any summer street wardrobe.
