Psynopsis DIY Vivienne Westwood Cut with Next T-Shirt
If I can do it, you can do it… because since I saw Vivienne Westwood explain how to create a really cool pirate tee I've done this again and again. The secret is: The hole for the head goes not on top, but in the front, slightly lopsided, and suddenly the dynamics all change. Playing with the bleach helps to get the I've-been-living-on-a-boat-and-haven't-showered-in-years effect – and you're all ready for your little pirate dance at the beach.

I love that shot of you! You look ab fab!

I can't believe how much shifting the hole does. So smart!

Vix said...

What wonderful pictures, Sabine. Changing the dynamics of the neck hole makes perfect sense, why have I never thought of that before? x

Marinka said...

Harriet said...

Oh wow, can I come?! Haven't been to the beach in... I was gonig to say years but it's actually been two weeks. Haven't been to the beach when it was actually warm and sunny in years!

Yohoho and a bottle of rum! Thanks for the great tip! Was there a neckhole originally or is this a tee you made from scratch? Wonderful photos!

Veshoevius - It was a normal, man-size t-shirt which I cut off in a straight line on top and sewed together. Then I cut a hole (as shown) to make a new opening for the head. xo

I am inspired to do my own pirate tee! Alas, the part of Texas I live in has no seaside to dance upon :( I will simply have to break into a spontaneous jig when I complete the project! Great post.
