generation T inspired me and I decided to do a no-sew kickass tshirt. I took an xl/xxl tee (i wear a large normally) and went to work. here are the steps accompanied by the worst tut ever!
edit: tut potentially violates copyright laws, so no official Tut. however it's uber-easy if you read my half-assed instructions

1. cut the shirt straight down the middle. I then cut slits about an inch or so apart all down the two sides of the middle
2.cut slits (across from each other) about an inch apart (or however far apart depending on how much skin you want to show)
3. take a strip you just made and tie it with the one across from it.
4. continue step 3 down the shirt until you feel it's complete.

I repeated the whole process on the sides of my shirt too, sio here's what it looks like (modeled by me)




the token badly-lit shot =)


In the light, so you can better see the detail

good luck and have fun

very cute.
i really like the shade of blue.


just a thought. if that idea was taken from generation t. i think you aren't allowed to put up at tutorial for copyright reasons. i think. don't quote me on it. and if i'm wrong... ignore me. but i thought that's how it works.

I like it. It has this sort of raggy, bad-ass girl kind of vibe about it Smiley

Hah. I have that book too.. You did a great job on that. XD I've always wanted to try it, but find myself lazy to tie all those o.O

Also, I think foreversandals might be right..  Undecided

it's a cotton shirt I'm glad you like it! =D I hope my bad tut isn't copyrighted. I'm going to take off the tut and maybe just leave instructions?  I don't know, but I'm glad you like =)

Oh, you tried the same one as I did! I like the way you put knots both in the sides and the front! Are there knots in the back as well? I didn't dare to make more than one line of knots on mine, but it looks really good on yours, makes it fit nicely. Have you tried any others from generation t? I'd like to try the wedding dress, just to see how it turned out.

Thank you! glad you like it =)

there aren't any knots in the back; I felt it may be overkill for me but it would be pretty badass if you could pull it off =D

the wedding dress looks so complicated however that mayy be my idea for prom

^.^
