Homage To Chanel


I am pretty stoked about this t shirt I just made, I was looking for a vintage Chanel tshirt when I came across someone who had made this super cute DIY version. I bought an oversized t shirt, blew up an image, put it under the t shirt on cardboard and traced over with pencil, then coloured it in with a textile sharpie. I left a small part left uncoloured, adds to the homemade effect and added my personalised tag. Perhaps I will try this recession 2.55 bag to complete the look ;)
P.S. I watched the Coco Chanel movie last night (a bit late I know), was so great. Gave me shivers to think how her style is still so relevant today, almost 100 years on, breton striped tops for example, wowsers!

What a fantastic DIY, love that you left a little bit uncolored.

Ah that's amazing!!!! You should start selling them....although there are probably some royalties issues there so forget I said that! They'd make good presents!

I've been meaning to do this for a while now, but I can never find the perfect tee that's cheap enough to not feel sad if I get it wrong, hmhm. Yours looks beaut though! www.dazedyoungmess.blogspot.com

wowowowowowowowowooo!!

Question: Have you washed it yet? And if so did the Sharpie bleed or fade?

I have seen this done before, love the idea of you just-not-finishing the tail end of the logo, brilliance!

Kitty White said...

Thank you! No I haven't washed it yet but will let you know for sure ;)
