I'm sure many of you have now seen the trailers for the new Sex and the City movie! When a bunch of photos leaked out a few months ago, I immediately started going gaga for the clothes, but really, who can wear that stuff in real life? Answer, no one. There is one thing I can, though, and that's SJP's J'Adore Dior tee seen here: http://extratv.warnerbros.com/images/news/INFphoto_1101870.JPG

The problem? Dior stopped printing those tees in the 90's and they have no plans to recreate them, even for crazed Sex and the City fans. Obviously we crafty ladies can find solutions for such harrowing issues.

It took me a while to figure out that the font used here is Winston, but it had to be stretched and tweaked to get the right shape. The number 8 is also a different font entirely, so that took ages to figure out! I did the standard freezer paper stencil technique and ended up with this:


It can be tricky to stencil white on black, especially if your fabric has any stretch. I always start with a coat of gray (like when painting a light wall color over a dark one) and move the fabric around a bit to make sure the paint saturates. I top this with a coast of white. It covers better and pops more, and keeps you from needing four coats of white, which can lead to a stencil so thick it cracks easily.

I'll be wearing this to the movie with my gal pals of course, Magnolia cupcakes and cosmos in hand!

p.s. while searching for clear images of the tee I found this one, which first makes me laugh and then makes me feel old. Look how young she is here! http://www.wallpaperbase.com/wallpapers/celebs/jessicasimpson/jessica_simpson_44.jpg

Wow, looks like you nailed it with the font and the size. Looks exactly the same. Great job, especially for having the patience to figure that out.

Very clever!!! I'm sure you could make a killing selling these reproductions to all the other Sex & the City fans that will be dying to get their hands on one of these Ts!

Speakeasy, let me know if you'd like a doc of the font. I'll email it to you so you don't need to do all the figuring out Smiley
