DIY | How I made my Q-day top

Let's end this first day of May with a brand new DIY tutorial! Yesterday, we Dutchies celebrated Queensday (about which i will tell you more later) and i wore my self-made flag-printedtop. When i woke up  yesterdaymorning, i still had nothing to wear and it's kind of a tradition here to dress up in our national colors  red/white/blue or orange. But i'm really impulsive, which was handy this time, and decided to do a quick DIY and make my own Queensday top in less than an hour. Yeaaah, i can do that, and so do you!

1. Take an old, big tee (i used one of my fathers).
2. Cut off the sleeves, neck and a few centimetres of the bottom.
3. Cut a big V at the back of your tee and make the gaps for your arms larger. 
4. Use the string you cutted of the bottom to tie the two shoulder-straps together and wrap them a few times. I also made the top high-low by folding it in two and cutting it in a curve. (Sorry, forgot to take a picture...)
5. Use a flat brush to paint your flag. You can choose to make another print of course.
6. Print out a picture of the crown and draw the lines.
TADAAAA, here's your own Queensdaytop! (and you can wear it on 5th may too)

Heel origineel, en je kunt het inderdaad ook mooi met bevrijdingsdag aan. Jammer dat je geen foto gemaakt hebt van dat knippen van de achterkant haha, maar het resultaat is leuk!

Als je een reactie achter laat ben je lief, maar geld doneren zodat ik schoenen kan kopen is ook altijd een optie.
