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

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
