I was watching uncommon threads this morning and they were reconstructing white t's into a wedding dress or something and all i could think of was the shirt the girl doing it was wearing. Here's a pic..it's kind of hard to see but this is the best picture I could find.  Does anyone know how to do this?

A girl on another forum I'm on made that shirt, she got the idea from the book Generation T, I think.
You just need to have a 'stencil' of the shape you want (in this case a heart) and then you cut slits, using the stencil edges as a guide for where you stop cutting.

I did something similar. I cut 1 inch slits across the top front and back then cut a little heart of slits too. It's not hard. Yeah. Get the book.

It's definitely an idea from Generation T actually! I checked  Tongue Take a tee and turn it inside out. Draw the shape (they used a heart) you want on the inside of the front of the tee. Using a razor or fabric shears, cut slits about 1/2 inch apart, from one side of the image to the other. Turn it right side out and wear over a contrasting color tee. Voila!

that's a neat idea, im assuming you could even line the cut out part with a contrasting color and forego the other T. something shimmery would look neat with a pretty decorative stitch around would also highlight the cut out section  Wink

It looks like mayble a double layered tee with the top layer shredded into the heart?

That is from Generation T, its one of the first projects and that is the writer of the book actually. The tut for the wedding dress is also in there plus 106 other awesome projects.

That shirt looks great! I just got the book last week and this is one project I was not going to do because I just did not like the pic in the book but in color, I love it!

I guess I should re-do my to do from the book. Smiley
