- Asymmetrical Shredded T -

Followed childhood flames how to. I cut off one sleeve plus the hem of the another sleeve and the bottom hem before I began shredding the t-shirt. I found it difficult to stop the shreds narrowing at top and gave up in the end. I have found that the top can be worn in a variety of ways. On the shoulder, off the shoulder, with a belt, or with the remaining sleeve tucked inside itself to create a one shoulder vest.
The how to can be found in the credits

    whoa, I like this and have been wanting to make a tina turner style dress and do this to it! also a good friend in my clothing class has become obsessed with the photo you have as your profile picture-he is determined to make a paper dress! what a coincidence

    This is a wonderful version, I really like the asymmetry. I am right there with bettieshambles. I totally wanted to this but I definitely dont have the patience. How long did this take you?

      I can’ tell you exactly how long it took as it was one of those projects that you drop and pick up again a lot. The shredding didn’t require a lot of attention so I did a lot while watching tv. It probably took no more than 8 hours in total but after about 45 mins of shredding your fingers start to hurt.

    I love this… I remember when she posted this and I thought “there is no way I’ll have the patience for that”, lol. You did a really good job.
