DIY: fringe that tee

Friday, 8 July 2011

So I'm sure this isn't the first DIY you've seen for fringing an old tee, am I right?

I've wanted to do it for a while and decided this tee was perfect. It was completely unflattering but I just couldn't bring myself to get rid of it because I picked it up in Monterey in California when I travelled the coast of that beautiful state in 2007 with my family - it's a nod to my former self, that's for sure.

Anyway, the fringing is completed in a V shape, which was inspired by a girl I saw the other day rocking this look. This is how I did it, and I think it's pretty self explanatory:

[Oh hi socks! I'm just so fashionable, it's unbelievable.]

I also kept the seam I cut off from the bottom of the tee and used it as a little hair tie. I'm rocking on the DIY front today it seems...

What do you think?


  1. Ah I love your header! You look so pretty in all of these photo's! Loved this post :) xx

  2. Looks great will have to give it a try with one of my old tee's.

  3. This turned out really well! I tried to do it once to one of my old shirts...I'm so not a DIYer. Had to throw the whole thing in the trash. :o

  4. Ohh it looks wonderful! <3 I love what you did with the extra scraps too!
