I've been DIY'ing my heart out over here
I've been DIY'ing my heart out over here - and I meant to post this on the 4th of July, but as usual, I'm behind. So here it is, this safety-pinned tank, inspired by one I saw in a Japanese mag of yore:

  • How to make a tank top. Diy Patriotic Punky Tank - Step 1
    Step 1

    Easy peasy. Use a seam ripper and blunt scissors to slash one of the shoulder-straps in the center. Pin the slash and around the neckline of the tank with the black safety pins, haphazardly, crossing them over, etc. Add some silver ones for visual interest (I folded down and scrunched the other side too, just for the helluvit.) Transfer both iron-ons following the directions. Hand-wash. Or never wash. Whichever.

    Punk? Yup. Patriotic? Kind of - not intentionally. But I thought it appropo for the 4th, so that's what I wore.:-)

    Hope you guys had a happy 4th! (That is, if you celebrate US holidays...;-)

Hi, I like the style of this singlet and cool pinned shoulder but just letting you know that symbol has real neo-nazi overtones.. its a german nationalist image which was co-opted by the nazis and is now worn by a lot of racist skinheads
