I fell in love with the printed Chanel tank seen here:
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_5DZbgHv0KQk/Ss9kzpVN4jI/AAAAAAAACD8/ZIlmCCyoLr0/s400/faux+chanel+tee.jpg

So I made my own!  Here's how:

1. Take a white Men's XL t-shirt and a black fabric pen (I used FabricMate Chisel Tip).  The shirt is a Nautica XL, soooo much better than Hanes (nice and soft, slightly translucent, and drapey!).

2. Place your shirt over a board and apply a liberal spraying of heavy starch to make it literally "flat as a board."

3. In Photoshop, create the lettering (I added my initials as the double-C logo in the middle, haha).  (Sorry I don't remember what font it was.)  Make the double-C's large enough to fit on one 8.5" x 11" page (landscae), and the text below large enough to print out landscape on another 8.5" x 11" page.  Print out your images, and place the paper underneath your tee on top of the board.

4. Trace the letter outlines with the fabric marker and fill them in carefully, repeatedly filling in the same areas until they are nice and dark and solid (this will take awhile).

5. Cut off the hem into side-tails by folding the shirt in half vertically and cutting a semicircle - the center is cut higher than the side.  Cut off the neck ribbing and the sleeves.  Stretch the cut edges until they roll slightly.

If you wash it, probably cold water hand wash is best.

Because life definitely needs more cavorting!

So super-easy to make! I'd love to see everyone's DIY versions and get some feedback!
