so, i'm absolutely in love with cut off hanes shirts because i love plain, neutral, layering, and anything cropped.. and this, my friends, combines it all. GENIUS. and of course i have them in every color.. buttt i was wearing too many of the white and wanted to switch it up a little but still have a light color (and sadly hanes doesn't make cream, beige, or off-white colored shirts) so i decided to put a little design on them, but was having trouble thinking of what. sooo.. i was blogging a few days ago and found this picture on another blog (which the name of is totally slipping my mind, so if this is you, e-mail me ASAP!) and decided to make my own variation and after browsing through the yves saint laurent collection, decided to make this one too.

all i did was cut out the collar and hem of the sleeves and cut the bottom about 6 or 7 inches (based on a size small mens shirt) in a curved shape so it hangs down on the sides and is a bit cropped in the front. send me your own designs- i'd love to see what you guys do with these!

heres one of the plain white shirts :

I like the Whysl shirt! I must try cutting the color like that. T's that drop at the side are famously popular in Japan. I've never been able to pull it off but maybe it's time!

Little Girl said...

I've made a goal to learn how to sew (with a machine) and do some DIY, and you've just inspired me to actually do it. Definitely going to try what you suggested over summer.

Visit me please! (:

Love the WHYSL one. So clever.

Ebony said...

This is funky! I've never heard of these shirts - are they purely an American release or can I get my hands on them here somehow?
Course I'm not a big fan of cropped shirts, what with my tummy being as wobbly as it is :p
But when that changes, hopefully so will my love of cropped things.
So send us a link to an online store selling these shirts :D Would love to try out some DIY on them, as inspired by you!
