Last week, I finally received my very first 13 Lucky Monkey t-shirt! :) I’ve been wanting one for sooooo long. Thanks so much for sparing me one, Mr. Lucky Monkey! Hahaha! I know I wanted a size small but it was reserved for someone else so the large will do! Because if I don’t take this, I may never have one EVER. LOL!!! Kidding! These shirts were made by our friends from Good Government (Instagram: @goodgovernment) So sorry for what I’m about to do to your awesome t-shirt…
Ok, so here’s the large tee :) I would wear this shirt as is for sure and maybe just fold the sleeves. But I wanted to do something different with it. I know some of my friends have been doing this for years, cutting up oversized t-shirts and turning them into something new. So I decided to try it out with this 13 Lucky Monkey t-shirt.
So I got one of my favorite tank tops so that it would be easier for me to cut the shirt. This one is from Be.Everyday, a local brand that I was so happy to discover during the Whitespace Pop Up earlier this year. Check out more of their cool tank tops at their Instagram account: @be.everyday.ph :)
So using chalk, I just traced the sleeves and made the armhole just a little bit bigger so that I can use this shirt over my sports bra when I go indoor cycling. Yessss :) Hahaha! Arte.
You can cut the shirt using any ordinary scissors but I used the largest one I had so that there will less zigzags when I cut.
Then you can just fold the shirt in the middle to make sure both sides are equally cut. Then just smoothen the edges :)
Looking good :)
Now to cut the bottom part. Again I traced it with chalk.
My Be.Everyday shirt is shorter in the front than the back. So I just followed the pattern :)
Tadaaaaaaa!!! My 13 Lucky Monkey tank top… I call it my Hubby Tee. Kasi galing kay hubby yung shirt… Corny ba??? :)
And here is my first Hubby Tee :) LOVES IT!!!
Here’s my macho picture of me wearing my Hubby Tee :) Hahahaha! Macho talaga :) Pasensiya na sa aking feeling “siga” pose. Haha! :)
Watch out for my next Hubby Tee at binigyan na ako ng isa pang shirt to cut! Woot woot!!! Thank you, Mister Dante! :)
