No Sew, Lattice, Stud T-shirt DIY.


Inspiration
Charlotte Russe Window

Tutorial
Things you need

  1. Shirt * I used a  Fruit of the Loom V-neck.( size of your choice, they come in all colors)
  2. Scissors
  3. Ruler
  4. Chalk
  5. Studs * Hobby Lobby

I drew a straight  line using my ruler across the front of the shirt right below the point of the V.




with my chalk.
 I drew 11 lines on each side of my shirt.

 I cut those lines with my scissors.
I cut the two middle pieces out completely.
and I started to stud my other pieces together.
Here is the pattern I used.
you can leave it like this or.......
you can tie it up on one side.



Now you have your own lattice shirt.
 No sewing required.

Happy Tuesday Everyone!
Lots of <3,
Anne

  12. This is a fantastic idea and looks amazing - I'm trying to make one myself but the claw studs just keep falling out - I bend the prongs as far in as I can but they never stay put for long. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? I bought the studs on eBay and they're good quality (I can't use Hobby Lobby as I'm in the UK) but just will not stay in. Any advice would be much appreciated!

    1. I am not sure why they are doing that, maybe they are too big? send me a picture so I can see what you mean:)

  13. HI! I am loving this! I have already made the no sew draped cardi! Anyway, I bought the fruit of the loom vneck tees from Target today to do this, but went to Michael's and Jo-Ann's (Hobby Lobby was closed today) to find the studs and couldn't find them. I am anxious to do this....do you have any other suggestions to do in place of the studs?

  15. How do you get the studs in the shirt?

    1. The studs have two prongs, that you fold over with pliers or your fingers.

  16. Can you tell me exactly what the stud packaging says so I know what to ask for. Love this shirt.

    1. Here is a link on etsy http://www.etsy.com/listing/69101265/medium-bronze-pyramid-studs-50-count-8mm
      Also they are made by Tandy, just ask for studs made by Tandy in the leather section.:)

  17. hi! i am excited to do this tshirt, but i am having trouble with the SHIRT part lol. the v-necks i bought dont seem to be as deep of a V as yours, leaving less cut out area to the side. where did you buy your fruit of the loom vnecks? are they a package or sold singly? thanks! Nina

    1. Fruit of the loom shirts, in the colors, are sold separately. I bought mine at Wal-mart.

  19. I so want to do this to one of my gym tees, I always feel pretty unfeminine when I'm at the gym as I'm not exactly small so have to wear a size 4xl to make sure I'm covered up but this could help to make me feel better!

    Got to find some studs like this in the UK, but am thinking maybe winding and knotting embroidery thread around them may work just as well and could avoid the possibility of chafing and rubbing given how hot and sweaty I get!

    Thank you for the inspiration!

  20. Hey! I'm not sure if you've already seen my other comment, but this one is along the same lines. Would you mind if I reblogged this? I absolutely love it - it looks totally classy and fashionable, and you don't even have to sew! So if you're okay with it, I'd like to re-blog this (citing you as the source and linking, of course). Please contact me at blogjia12@gmail.com ASAP! Thanks!

  21. Hi! First of all thank you so much for sharing all these great ideas! I have been trying them out the past few days. I a, currently giving this one a shot and I have a few questions for you to make sure I have the best outcome. 1) do you always use men's shirts or are some of these women's? I had a hard time finding the colored fruit of the loom shirts at Walmart. 2) when you buy the packaged shirts do you wash them before you alter them? 3) how do you recommend washing these shirts in the future?

    1. Hey there Kassie, Thanks so much for the question. 1. Yes I always use mens shirts. they have a fantastic variety of colored mens shirts made by fruit of the loom in Wal-mart 2. No I do not always wash them.. Once in a blue moon I do but for the most part I don't. 3. I always wash all of my shirts in cold and hang them dry. Some of the glitter shirts I Hand wash, but for the most part I just wash them in the washing machine on cold. I hope this helps. Have a fantastic Night <3.

  22. Hey Anne, I am completely in love with what you do with these tees. Especially this one. I am thinking of making one like this, and I was just wondering whether fraying is ever an issue, and what the best fabric is for cutting and no sewing.
    BTW, I like your name...
    Anne :)
