Introduction: Skull Cutout T-shirt

A while ago, these skull-cutout tees were all over the place.  I really wanted one, but I wasn't crazy about the design.  I wanted a really gnarly kind of skull!!  And I didn't see any reason to spend money buying one when I knew I could make one in about 30 minutes.
So here we are.  

Directions:
Procure t-shirt
Design skull
Cut skull out of t-shirt
Optional: cut neck, sleeves and hem off of t-shirt to turn it into a tank top!

And, done.

I made a bit of a remix of this old classic, substituting the skull for a Stormtrooper. Hope you like it!

Cool! What kind of t-shirt is that? It looks slightly sheer. I am going to try this except with a butterfly pattern instead.

Put a red one underneath so you can wear a bra!

Trying to think of what kind of bra to wear with this...

put the face on the front and the bra would be the eyes of the skull XD

I just saw a chick wearing one on the street yesterday. I wanted to compliment her shirt but didn't, because I didn't want her to call me a creep in public. It's a simple but awesome ible.

Very Cool look I am going to make for my grandsons this weekend. Is there a way to copy just the skull patttern? Thank You

I think if you download the second picture, you could blow up the image I used large enough to trace it. Click on the "i" in the upper left corner, and choose the "original" size.

Looks awesome. Being a guy i don't worry much about "Layering" my tops, but i could see some potential options here with wearing a different color undershirt to change the cut out area to the color of my choice. Nice instructable, thanks!

It won't as long as you use a t-shirt (which is knit) as opposed to something woven.

author

expecially if the design was on the front.

I meant the picture. I wasn't referring to HER as "that". Sorry for the confusion.

You could sew a big black patch behind it, if it was cold or you didn't want your skin showing.

author
mopar73 made it!(author)2012-06-28

Or just wear a dark t-shirt under it.

author
