DIY: Make Me an Olsen

hayleys diy.jpgAlmost everyone have a massive girl crushes on the Olsens, they probably developed ten years ago, probably while watching Billboard Dad.
Regardless of which goth, hippie or just plain crazy phase the twins are in, our girl crushes are still going strong today and have, of course, transfered to their fashion line, Elizabeth and James, and pretty much everything they touch. This Pave Tee is awesome, but at $265 it’s a little (okay, a lot) more than we’d ever spend on a t-shirt. So we devised a pretty easy DIY.
You’ll need a basic gray t-shirt (for amazing cut and great quality,get it at Cotton On,Forever21 or Topshop) silver sequins and a needle and thread – or if you’re lazy like us, fabric glue. If gray isn’t exactly your color you can substitute purple, pink, black, whatever your heart desires – that’s the beauty of a DIY.
Lie the t-shirt flat and commence either sewing or gluing the sequins onto the sleeves of the t-shirt. We found that a haphazard pattern looks best and takes the least amount of skill. Slip a piece of paper or cardboard inside the sleeve to ensure proper drying. Wait a few minutes for the glue to settle.
Then slip it on and poof, you’re an Olsen.
