{ DIY } Red, White, Blue & Peep Shoulders


Originally posted on KateSpanish:

I got this Tee from a Jay-Z and Kanye West concert I went to last December, and since then it hasn’t gotten much play time aside from running errands in or doing chores around the house in. I’ve been wanting to make more use out of it, but turns out this girly girl is not much a T-shirt regular. Last weekend, my friend Donellyn helped me transform it into a peep-shoulder tee–creating enough feminine flare for me to wear it out, and just in time for Fourth of July. It was a pretty straight forward cut-slits-through-each-sleeve and seam-the-cut-ends job, but I still couldnt do it without Donellyn’s sewing skills. Just another reason to be thankful for crafty girlfriends!
