DIY: Let's spice up a top




Hello friends, I hope everyone is well and still enjoying nice weather. This project, or idea to spice up a regular t shirt came to me within seconds.These additions on the shoulders are made from caps or from their visors.

Всем привет, надеюсь что все здоровы и наслаждаются хорошей осенней погодой. Этот проект мне пришeл в голову в считанные секунды. В моем доме много бейсболок. Я решила найти им пременение, что бы зря они не лежали без дела.Точнее я использовала козырьки от них и немного ткани для пуговиц







I have a lot of caps of different brands and colors - they are not mine, some of them are old, previously worn by my husband. I chose two grey almost identical looking caps.
You will need:
A shirt with wide neck opening, or you can adjust the opening yourself,
Two caps of the same color.
Two large size buttons
And a decorative ribbon, I used fabric belt, it already had white thread stitch on it.
Thread of two colors: grey and navy, and sharp, thin needle.

Я выбрала две бейсболки серого цвета, они практически одинаковые, хотя разных брендов.
Мне понадобились:
Майка, желательно с широким вырезом, можно откорректировать вырез самим, это не сложно
Два козырька от бейсбольных шапок, желательно одного цвета, или близких по цвету
Нитка серого и темно синего цвета, и тонкая, острая игла
Две большие пуговицы
Декоративная лента или тесьма, 
я использовала  пояс из ткани, с белой готовой строчкой.

I cut  visor of each cap: Once you cut it, there is a fabric underneath, I didn't cut it off, it served as a base to sew the whole construction around the top.

В начале я отрезала козырьки с каждой бейсболки, но не полностью, а лишь верхнюю часть, то что являлось подгибкой состоящей из плотной ткани, внутри, я не срезала она мне пригодилась как основа, которая была пришита к майке.

Before sewing it, just secure it with pins, sew lightly and try it on, to see how it sits, adjusting accordingly.

Прежде чем пришивать всю конструкцию очень важно во первых закрепить ее иголками и наметать.



These photos were taken with my cell phone - the quality is not good.


Once you are satisfied with how it sits, sew it onto the top, and then sew the decorative ribbon,  I  used fabric belt in navy color; another correction you need  to make is to fold in an extra ribbon (belt) fabric, so it sits nice and slick on shoulders, look at the picture:

Когда все будет пришито, следующая задача пришить декоративную ленту, и когда она пришита необходимо собрать ее в складки  (на равном расстоянии) и закрепить их швом, как показано на фото, в этом случае лента, как заключительная декоративная деталь не будет торчать на плечах, а будет сидеть гладко, красиво огибая плечи. 
Я использовала готовый пояс темного синего цвета уже с белой строчкой, его я пришила вдоль этой строчки темно синими нитками. Белая строчка добавляет какую-то законченность. Снова померила, и потом залажила складки на пришитом поясе на равном расстоянии, чтобы oн лежал (а не торчал) гладко по линии плеч.




I wanted to add buttons , they were dark brown, so I wrapped each one in the fabric from caps, and sewed them onto the shirt. I chose this color transition on purpose.

Последний штрих - я обвернула  пуговицы тканью с каждой бейсболки, я целенаправленно выбрала цветовой переход, что бы добавить изюминку общему виду.

Have a nice day and week.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog!

Желаю всем прекрасного дня и хорошей недели.
