Designer DIY: Make Your Own “$1,000” T-Shirt
Went shopping lately? Have you ever seen something that you really want? Or browsed online, and thought it’s simple and easy to make but never thought of making it yourself? I have. Just this week, I have stumbled upon Vogue’s featured article regarding designers making a $1000 t-shirt. When I saw Prabal Gurung’s creation, I immediately fell in love with the simplicity of the design and thought, maybe I can try stealing the look and make one like it. So I went and looked for my old dress and an old t shirt to copy the design. Luckily my dress already have a big bow in it, so all I have to do is snip it out and attach it to the shirt. I just had a little challenge with removing the mini chest pocket that was sewn in on my t-shirt. Fortunately I was able to snip it off clean and have successfuly removed the bow and the pocket without leaving any rips or holes. Check out the pictures below to see what I came up with.

What do you think? I actually love how it turned out and I got the designer look all free of cost! 🙂 Trt it out for yourself and check what you can salvage from your old clothes. I’d most likely use the rest of the red dress to my other DIY’s. If you have any questions, suggestions or request, feel free to let me know. Til’ next xox.
