No Sew, Laced Up Shoulder Tee.

I am constantly looking for ways to use leather lace, I have a slight obsession with the stuff. I saw a shirt a while ago with a laced up sleeve but it required sewing.  I do not mind sewing, but not everyone has a sewing machine and if you can create something that anyone can do with as little tools as possible, than more people could make it.
 Anytime I see something I want to create I try my best to do it without sewing. (Kind of a challenge to myself.)  Also, this shirt is made with brass pins which are rust proof. I am sure you could stitch the hems down if you feel the need. I am going to experiment without sewing.

Things You Need.
  • Shirt
  • Brass Pins *Walmart
  • Scissors
  • Leather lace or shoe strings. * Walmart or Michaels
  • Chalk or a Washable Marker
  • Cut off the collar.
  • Cut down the top of the sleeve.
  • Mark how many pins you would like. I put seven on each side. 
  • * Originally I had 13 on each side, that was way too many.
  • Fold over your edges twice. This gives the pins more stability.
  • You could sew this if you would like.
  • Cut the leather lace about 48 inches long.
  • Set your pins on the top side of the fabric, using them to hold your hem down.
  • Lace up your leather,  alternating back and forth like you would be lacing up a shoe.
  • Tie a knot on the end of each leather lace.

  • Finished.
Have a Beautiful Day!
