I have been experimenting with different backs on t-shirts lately. Open back shirts seem to be all the rage during the hot summer months and with all of the new lacy back bra-lets it the perfect way to show them off. I would wear this with a colored tank top underneath or over my bathing suit at the beach.
There is just something about a lattice pattern that I am drawn to.
Here is how I made my no sew open back, lattice shirt.

This No Sew tank is similar to a couple of other no-sew tanks I have done in the past, but is designed and cut differently and because I am completely obsessed with palm leaves right now I experimented with a positive and negative design which creates a shadow effect. I am thinking my next project will be palm leaves in different bright colors like Hot Pink or Neon Blue.(80'sStyle) I seriously LOVE this new fabric Color Shot spray by Tulip. It has cut my time making stencil design T-shirt in Half and with the limited time I have that is a super big plus for me.
This shirt has already found a new home
as one of my dear friends said she would love to have it
for her beach trip in July, so bye bye shirt.
Oh well I guess I will just have to make another one ;) .

I have had a lot of emails asking How to make your own Homemade Stencils, which is something I always do. It is quick and easy and pretty inexpensive. "Winner!"
Here is my method of making stencils that I want to last more than just one time.
Things you need
Clear Contact Paper *Target or Wal-mart.
Printed out picture
#1 Print out your picture
#2 Cut your contact paper double the size of your paper.
#3 Peel off the contact backing
#4 Place the paper on the contact paper.
#5 Fold over the other side of the paper.
#6 Trim the edges
#7 Place on a Cutting board and with the X-acto knife cut out your stencil.
#8 All Finished.
Have a great day!
Lots of <3,

I knew I wanted to try and recreate it out of a t-shirt.
The shirt below, of course, is a sleeveless shirt and is blue,
all I really just wanted to do is the necklace detail across the top.
This DIY almost took a turn for the worst when I cut one too many strips
and thought I would have to scrap it.
In the end the shirt worked out pretty much like I wanted it to, maybe even better,
just a little different from the picture below.
The best part of making things yourself is that you can tweak them to fit you.
The top picture of me is the first one I created and is a little lower than I had expected but with a tank top under it worked out great. I wore this shirt all day and it stayed in place and wore well.
I did one more with not as many strips and it sits just slightly different on the body.
I will put that picture at the end of the post.
So grab you scissors and lets make a fun summer Tee!

Tied up shirts . *New trend for summer?
I thought it would be fun to make one with sleeves
or an off the shoulder look because I am not a fan of sleeveless things on me. Just Sayin. :/
This was one of my inspirations
from Lets Get Thrifty.com
