It’s FriYAY already ya’ll! I woke up this morning and wanted to wear just a plain ol’ sweater. However, I had some extra time on my hands and thought to myself that I could spice this sweatshirt up but not the usual way with jewellery…
Designer holes my friend.
I believe there’s a time and place to splurge your money on materialistic items. However, when it comes to distressed clothing… Rarely do I ever purchase already cut up pants, shirts, hats etc. I am very crafty when it comes to this type of ordeal and I am highly capable to Do It Yourself (and most of you are as well) so instead of spending my life savings on a t-shirt that looks like it went through the garbage disposal on accident, I am going to create my own designer holes with TLC included. It does not get any better than that.
I find it categorically foolish when someone spends too many zeros on a pre-holy shirt, I mean come on. You know how many flat whites you can buy with that?? I am going to guess at least $150, not kidding. It’s all about priorities though. I am all about designing items myself, it brings my inner child out of me. It also creates and originality factor too.
With all this mumbo jumbo let’s proceed to the product of today’s BCD DIY:
- Step 1. Find a pure clothing item you want to distress.
- Step 2. Pinch a small piece of the fabric.
Step 3. Delicately snip the tip of the fabric.
- Step 4. REPEAT all over without rhyme or reason. Take a step back after some clusters because you can get carried away.
Step 5: STOP when you feel you should. If you don’t you can overdue it with holes and it will look cheap rather than designer-like.
Step 6. You have now created your own DIY designer hole sweatshirt, top, hat, etc. You will thank yourself and so will your wallet. YOU ROCKSTAR, YOU!
Lots of love,
