Ever since seeing Zana’s cutout skull sweater by Pleasure Principle, I’ve had a major crush on the label. From their fantastically simple split knee jeans to their knot dress, their designs are extremely covetable. Anyway, to the point of this article (which wasn’t to gush about the brand), I’d been lusting over Pleasure Principle’s cut out spine tee for what seems like ages when I realized that it would make a rather simple DIY project.
What You’ll Need:
-a piece of clothing
-something to mark your garment with
-liquid seam sealant (I used Fray Check)
1. Draw out your design on your garment. It’s best to do this in something that can be washed out (water-soluble marker) or rubbed off (tailor’s chalk) in case you change your mind about something as you start cutting. Also, I suggest keeping the cut edges at least a ¼” apart from each other to reduce the possibility of anything unraveling/tearing/etc.
2. Cut the fabric along the places you’ve marked.
3. Apply Fray Check to the raw edges and let dry.
4. Wear your new creation and post it on Chictopia!
The best part about this DIY is that there are endless possibilities! You could cut virtually anything anywhere on the garment of your choice.
I’m excited to see what your creative minds will come up with!
