Revamp that Vintage Graphic Tee
Hi everybody, sorry I have been MIA for awhile. There is a lot going on and unfortunately sometimes my blog is at the bottom of my to do list (when really if I had my choice it would be high up there). One thing that has happened is my hot water tank went out. Nothing makes you appreciate hot water more than having to heat it up on the stove to take a bath. I never realized how big bath tubs really are. I was so lucky to have someone in my life that could help my family with this problem and I couldn't thank them enough. For this post, my focus is to give your vintage tee a new spin. Many years ago I purchased this shirt at a store that focused on taking vintage items and giving them new life. Unfortunately this store is no longer around, so I definitely think this is a great DIY. The sleeves are cut in a half circle shape and then elastic is used to gather around the arms. My favorite detail of the shirt, is the sleeve design is mirrored on the front and the back. Also, the elastic makes a slight ruffle which gives the t-shirt a feminine feel.
