Sleeveless Shirt DIY

Last Sunday I went shopping and fell completely in love with this sleeveless shirt from Topshop. Although £26 is perfectly reasonable for a shirt for some reason Topshop makes me incredibly stingy, so much of the stuff is overpriced that I always have to scuttle off down the road to Primark for a cheaper alternative. Unluckily Primark didn't really have a lot to offer, at least not until I spotted their sale section when I was on my way to the till. I never really think to check out the Primark sale - it's cheap enough already but a checked shirt caught by eye so I wandered over. Unluckily this shirt had sleeves but it was pretty much the same checked pattern as the Topshop one. I can deal with sleeves I thought, they can easily be removed. So I bought it, for only £3 how could I say no.




The Topshop version didn't have studs but I added them anyway as I can't seem to resist studding things at the moment.

Speak soon. x

  3. I am still meaning to do this to a load of my old school shirts! Love this idea, £26 would have been a ridiculous amount to pay considering yours looks so good! xx

  7. Love this idea, it's amazing what a couple of snips of the scissors and a couple of studs can do to transform a shirt! I'm completely the same about topshop, although I've been shopping there more and more recently, but I only ever go in to look in the sale, since that's all I currently can afford!(: x

  8. i've done this with so many of my shirts, but after i've done it i haven't worn them (probably because i choose to cut up the weirdest coloured shirts, haha) but i'll keep my eyes peeled for a black and white one, i do fancy wearing these tucked into shorts this summer, effortless but lovely :)
