Southampton, Uni...






I didn’t actually make the t-shirt (as me and my over-locker are having some personal issues)
I attached all the eyelets. I’d love to make another one with many many more eyelets when I get the time.

Material Notes

eyelets, t-shirt




Garment Type
Casual, Grunge, Punk, Rock
Cotton, Eyelet

    I love this! You’d pay so much for this in Topshop or somewhere similar! i’ve wanted to try this for ages but can never find the rivets/eyelets or Prym stockists. Where did you find them?

      Hey, thanks for your comment. I got my eyelets from a fabric shop called Fabricland. I notice you live in London and I know there is a branch of Fabricland in Kingston so maybe try their. otherwise good old Ebay should do the trick.

      Hi Marrta,

      You can get these on Ebay.
      I got mine from a fabric shop in Southampton called Fabricland, they have a branch in Kingston, London so you could try there.

    Wow awesome! Great idea. It really fits in with all the sequinced / studded jackets you find in the shops all over Copenhagen…

    Thats a great idea!!! I was wanting to use studs/rivets on clothes but cannot find them anywhere at all…maybe this would be a good alternative, hope you dont mind more copying! :-) your shirt looks great

      Thanks for your comment , Please copy away!!

      I also think this top would look cool with those hammer on poppers that you can get. I think the company that makes them (and the eyelets) is called Prym! Oh, and as a tip…..You are definitley better off if you can get the ones where you can use a special plier device rather than a hammer!!

      I really like the dress you made recently with the leatherette waistband, really cool!
