carlyjcais 's Thoughts:

I’ve been hankering after a cutout skull tee since I saw some in last year’s S-Cawaii Magazine (Japanese) from the brand Barak (nothing to do with Prez Obama, I assure you). Trendy Tokyo girls wearing pastel-colored lightweight tees with skull-shaped cutouts over striped tees? Lovely! I decided to make my own Barak-style tee, with two el cheapo tees from Target.

It was a simple matter of cutting out the shape with a pair of scissors.

I also tried layering it over a black tee for a more Gothic look, and a white tank for a summery ensemble. You could also try with just a bra if you’re daring!

Read the how-to and the full post, and download the skull-drawing template I made at:

Thanks for looking!

Thanks! (I actually don't cute *that* straight - it's funny - just using a lightweight jersey tee (instead of say, a fleecey sweatshirt) will cause the fabric to curl around the cut edges, so it just looks like the cuts are clean!) Haha - it may indeed be perfect for Halloween!:-) Thanks for the comments! xoxox Carly
