    Step 1

    1. Measure your wanted size & shape. I use fabric chalk to mark my t-shirt. I wanna make the skull look more fierce by adding some studs. After you done marking your shirt, its time to cut them!

    Step 2

    2. When you finished cutting, you’ll have 3 separate fabrics. 1 main shirt & 2 separate sleeves. Cut the sleeves as in picture. Don’t forget to also cut each bottom of the sleeve to open our fringe.

    Step 3

    3. …and that should left us with these. The shape would be perfect for our tee’s shoulder. If not, adjust it so it would fit.

    Step 4

    4. Now put both sleeves onto tee’s shoulder. Sew a little, then hammer your studs right above the fringe. It should be easy, just remember to insert some scrap fabric between your front tee’s and back

    Step 5

    5. Actually, you can finish on 4. But since I’m so small, I think my top will look better if I add extra elastic to the bottom. Sew some elastic band to side-seam, and let it do the magic for you ♥
