DIY holey shredded jumper - tutorial

Photobucket

Tutorial

As promised (albeit a little tardy), here is the tutorial for my shredded jumper I almost didn't make this tutorial because its so easy peasy! Also because there are already some really great tutorials on tee shredding (this is a fav of mine). But I thought I'd post mine anyway.

You will need
Just a pair of scissors and a jumper with a fine knit. 
I was actually eyeing this one from Topshop for a while. So glad I waited because this guy was only $12 from Kmart!

Step 1: Cut
First have a look at where you want your holes. I just mapped it out in my brrrraaaiiiiinnnn but you might want to use chalk.

Step 2: Pull
Gently tug at the top section of the whole you have made. You'll see some threads come loose.

Step 3: Shred
Following the grain of the knit, keep pulling the threads apart until you have a decent section of loosened thread.

That's really it! There are loads of shredding tutorials on Youtube so hit those up too!

  7. Thanks for sharing the advices, it's not always evident to do it by ourselves, I never knew personaly how big to make the holes for it to look trendy and not destroyed
