Sew Rockin'
by Tana March

Collar | Sleeves | Front

Get into the groove! Break out your brother's stale old concert tees and make 'em your own.

Deconstruct and reconstruct to give this boring tee a glam rock look with fluted sleeves, inverted seems and hooks up the front. You'll top the charts with retro cool.

What you'll need
    Long sleeved concert tee
    Bias tape
    Hooks and eyes
    Sewing machine
    Decorative fabric (sraps)

Collar and body
  1. Cut off collar
  2. Cut the bottom to desired length.
  3. Iron shirt flat, right side out, to press creases along the sides, from the armpit to the bottom of the shirt.
  4. Use your sewing machine's zig-zag or serging stitch with a contrasting color thread to sew up the creases, giving your shirt an inside-out look.
  5. Use the same stitch to bind the raw edges along the cut collar and bottom.
