DIY: Shoulder Cut-out

9.11.10

image credit: pixie market via knight cat

I first spotted the shoulder cut-out detail on the Acne Amon printed chiffon blouse. Ever since, I've pretty much had cutouts on the brain really. That is, until I saw this studded collar shoulder cut-out shirt (such a mouthful no?) which sent bells a-ringing in my head. Although I prefer the shoulders on the Amon, the studded collar sure adds a lot of character.

I'm a wham bam thank you m'am kind of girl and try to look for DIYs that are on the same wavelength. Nitty gritty, down and dirty? Not really for me. Easy peasy lemon squeezy? We're in business. And it looks to me like I just found my next little side project.  All I need are some studs, a pair of scissors and a collared shirt. I'll keep you posted on how it turns out. Of course, if you happen to beat me to it, pray share.

Hope you're all faring well this week. Talk soon!


Bisous,
Abi

Oh, I can't wait to see your DIY! I myself am pretty hopeless with DIYs there is a pile with DIY projects I've never accomplished! :(

Answering you question on my blog about languages I speak - I speak Latvian (my native), Russian, English, French, Japanese (unfortunately almost forgotten as I haven't spoken it for 7 years!:() & German (very poor but still:))

I love your quickie DIY attitude! And such a worthy DIY project too :) (Why are cutouts so automatically sexy & chic? :))

Love these cut out sleeve shirts I've been seeing lately. I'd never be able to diy one because I fail at that kind of thing but I'd love one.
