DIY: Festivalize Your Shirt (And Win One We Made!)

Festival season is approaching, when fashion becomes that much more eclectic and free. People pull out all the stops to create a perfect festival look that’s eye catching, free spirited, and unique. This week for a DIY we customized one of our High and Low Buttondown  shirts with fabric pens and embroidery stitches. Click through to find out how to win it, and how we did it!

We wanted the shirt to be slightly customized, so we took our two favorite colors: a neon pink and a neon orange fabric pen and created small patterns around the shirt pockets and shoulder seams. Then we embroidered some stitches to give the shirt some texture. It’s subtle yet different, perfect for festival season!

What you need: A shirt of your choice, fabric pens, embroidery threads, and a sewing needle.

  5. Gorgeous gorgeous DIY idea!
    While I did love the shirt even before the customization, I think it looks so perfect for a festival with the tiny little touches added. The neon hints and the fun addition of texture makes the top girly yet a little bit rugged, so perfect for what I’m imagining to be is a messy and wild experience. I have yet to attend any sort of festival so I can only dream of how much fun it would be…whenever I have my first festival experience, I would love to be wearing something as cute as this!

    Thanks for sharing the DIY idea and for giving a shirt away!
