You can probably tell by now, that I love the Plain White T's.
I was browsing through their merchandise on their website, but sadly they don't ship to the Caribbean.
Also, I'm going to Panama with my school Foreign Language Club in a few days, and apparently we will all be wearing matching blue polo-shirts. Therefore, I knew I would have to do something before I totally blended in with everybody else.
Therefore, I made my own hoodie!



I used Mezzi's tutorial, then modified it as I went along.
It was a plain white t-shirt (XD) that I cut the sleeves off of, then attached the new black ones.
I then used freezer paper stencils that I cut out by hand to do the words and an iron on for the picture of the band. I was so scared that I did something wrong, but it came out beautifully! Oh, and cutting out all the little letters was HELL! I had used the font CoolVetica, but I don't know if you can tell...




It's the quotes to "Big Bad World".
"It's a big bad world, we're doing what we can,
Sometimes we fall on our face before we even learn to stand.
But we get back up, shake off all the dust
and take it step by step."

It's not crooked, just how the picture is taken Smiley


The hood is lined with the same plaid as the skirt.
Sorry if you can't see the skirt properly, but it's pleated with an elastic waistband.
I had been looking for that plaid for ages, then the cloth store imported a whole set of it, so I went mad and bought nearly 4 yards of it! (Sadly it did damage to my wallet, at $10.95 per yard-That's like $6 US i think) I've been using so much plaid in everything that my friends are now calling me Scottish Scotty Smiley





ignore the listerine bottle please Smiley

I had some help from my dad with attaching the zipper because it kept sliding out of place whenever I went to sew it.


So anyways, please comment and tell me what you think!
