I’ve wanted to do a few more DIY projects this summer and since my daughter is a master at cutting up t-shirts, I enlisted her to help me revamp a vintage-style concert shirt from the Goodwill Outlet in Reading.
Being an 80s girl, I was excited to discover the “Love and Rockets” concert tee from their European tour in 1988. But, it was an extra large and I wanted something a little more flattering than throwing on an oversized tee.
After looking up a few tutorials on Pinterest (there’s plenty of DIY ideas for t-shirts), we got started. It’s not as easy as it looks as there is a lot of back and forth, making sure you get the sides even, but using a plate as a template for the neckline and folding the shirt in half to get the sides symmetrical were two tips from Pinterest I will definitely use again.
I made it so that the front was longer and could be tied to adjust the fit. I added in my own distressed boyfriend jeans and rhinestone necklace and bangles. To round out the look, I picked up a pair of Carlos by Carlos Santana silver and black sandals. These flats are super comfortable and this chic outfit would be perfect to wear to a summer music festival or concert!
Pick up a few shirts from Goodwill and see what you can create!
