DIY Time: Spinal Tap a PWT*

May 17, 2009

*plain white tee

It feels like it’s been forever since my last DIY (I don’t even remember what it was…or if I actually did one…I mean, I thought about doing one…never mind).  Jazzy sent me over this cool lil’ tutorial on making a tornado tee and I merely expanded on the idea.  What resulted was cut-out madness that resembled vertebae.  WIN.








After about half an hour, you should end up with something that looks like this:


(please note that I lost about 2 -3″ from the back of my head;  HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Summer!)

DIY Tee, thrifted jeans, UO shoes, snakelet

    I did this DIY! I did it a while ago and I wore it so infrequently with the pull-over effect that I started wearing it just slashed.
