I've been fantasizing about this DIY for a very long time..
So lets not waste time and get to it.
In order to make this DIY you'll need:
- A White collared button down shirt.
- A Black satin ribbon.
- A small piece of Jeans/Denim fabric.
Unpick the collar (without the collar "leg")
Just like that.
Use the old collar to cut a new one from the denim fabric.
Sew the collar from the wrong side of the fabric.
Turn over the collar, and iron it.
Attach the collar to the shirt.
After sewing the new collar, make a decorative stitch.
Mark the front side of the shirt, where you want the braces to be.
(i took 9cm from the buttons).
Mark the back side as well.
Put a safety pin at the edge, and start sewing the black ribbon.
Sew the back as well.
Iron over the "braces" and the whole shirt.
Done and Done!! :)
A big thank you to Dror Geva for sewing!
So, how do you like my new Look-A-Like braces shirt?
