Lazy Girl’s Shirt D.I.Y.



I don’t necessarily recommend this method for re-purposing shirts, but it works for me because my sewing machine skills were left back in high school with that one home-ec class I took. I enjoy hand-stitching but…what can I say, I’m lazy.

All I did to repurpose this vintage shirt is cut the sleeves and glue the hem with liquid stitch. Instant shirt to wear for spring.

  1. I love that red on you. I always wanted to repurpose vintage. So maybe I’ll stop being lazy and get on it. Thanks for the inspiration. 🙂

    Also, this is the first time I’ve ever heard of liquid stitch. Learning something everyday with you.

    • haha,The beauty of being inspired by me is you can still get away with being lazy! Granted, I don’t guarantee reliable results using just liquid stitch, but I’m an imperfectionist so take any inspiration I give you with a grain of salt. 😉

      Sarcasm aside, thank you for the compliments! I truly do appreciate them!

  2. It might be simple but it is damn effective :p xo

  3. Right?! Words of wisdom, Dorien! Thanks for visiting my blog 🙂

  4. This is so awesome! I love the shirt you created!

  5. So cute! Although I’m scared to death of cutting any of my clothing pieces 😉

    Thanks for your comments on my blog! I’m finally going to the doctor about my injury, so hopefully that’ll give me an idea of what I’m looking at and what I can/can not do.

    And the anniversary getaway! Love the idea of Arkansas! I’ve never been there 🙂

  6. You did such an amazing job! I’ve seen this style before and I have a few shirts I’m dying to try it to, but I don’t know if mine will turn out as nice as yours did! And I love this colour of red, it looks great on you!
