the shred wagon

i jumped on it.



for quite a while, my time spent in class was usually spent doodling designs and coming up with minor alterations to basic tee's like dyeing, thinning, stenciling, etc...

i had seen the raquel allegra shirts on MK and erin wasson and loved the distressed look but i had never thought of trying my hand at it. after seeing a whole bunch of people's posts on shredded tee attempts, i figured i'd try it out too. but being the impatient gal that i am, i couldnt wait for thesomethingpicasso or camille to post tutorials on how they did theirs. so while watching project runway reruns, i went to work on a basic black tee that i cut into a tank. honestly folks, it's not hard. but it is time consuming. and i also found that my first few eager attempts ended up in big holes...so take it slow and be gentle =]

i used a mechanical pencil, a razor, and a needle...

i'm definitely not done shredding it. but i think it's really relaxing to do so i'm just going to add more shreds to it every time i wear the tank out and about.

the studs and chain are removable and temporary. i just wanted to see what else i could add to it.

but really, i'm already in love. too bad my boyfriend disapproves of me wearing the tank without a bandeau bra under! hah
