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!

How to enter:

Tweet or Instagram your favorite photo from a festival with the hashtag #FPDIY!

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.
