I decided that my old Batman shirt needed a revamp, since I hadn't worn it in ages and wanted to do something fun with it. I thought that this might be a great way to make a boxy t-shirt slightly more feminine, while keeping the superhero charm.
- Superhero t-shirt
- Iron-on interfacing
Step 1: Cut Interfacing
Cut a piece of interfacing of the same size and shape of your shirt's logo.
Step 2: Attach Interfacing
Turn your shirt inside-out and iron the interfacing onto the back of the shirt's logo.
Step 3: Cut Out Logo
Decide how much of the logo you want to be cut out. Mark this on the shirt (I used a tailor's pen for this). Cut out the inside piece that you don't want, leaving a small allowance to be folded over, and tack a hem around the edges.
Step 4: Tack Edges
Once all of the edges are tacked, iron them flat. After this, you can choose to hand-stitch or machine-sew them down, but this step is optional.
Step 5: Cut Lace
Cut a piece of black lace large enough to cover your logo-hole and position it as you choose.
Step 6: Tack Lace
Tack your lace into place and try the shirt on just to ensure that you're happy with it.
Step 7: Sew Lace
Machine-sew (or hand-stitch) the lace down by sewing along the edge of the logo, also securing the hem, remembering to finish of with a few back-stitches to secure it.
