My BFF moved last year to a much smaller place, and as a result, she purged a lot of old tees. I ended up with a box full. This Tori Amos tee is one of the ones I asked for. It was huge. An XL maybe? It needed to be altered to fit in some way, but I can't sew. So I cut instead.
I'm pretty happy with the results. I did go to this tour. It was maybe the last show I enjoyed. I was a big Tori fan back in the day and still really enjoy her first few albums, but her recent albums don't do anything for me and honestly, her new face freaks me out.
Jeans and a tee (especially when you throw in sneakers) is not my strong suit, but I was really happy with this outfit. I love the line on the straps and the tee was just the right fit to get a super low scoop cut out of it. It drapes really nicely now.
I've tried cutting tanks out of tees and few times now and only lost one tee in the process. It was a doozy though and oddly the one I screwed up was the last one I made. Not the first, or second. More like the fifth. I was pretty disappointed, but it's a risk you take when you pick up the scissors and DIY.
Have you ever really messed up a DIY? Was it a tragedy or just kind of disappointing? Got any other ideas for cutting up a tee that don't involved sewing?
