Take your strip and thread it through the two top holes where you marked with your chalk. Touch the ends of the strip together and pull up until you’ve found the middle of your strip. Continue to crisscross the thread through the holes, all the way down to the bottom. Tie the ends in a knot. If you don’t have enough strips to reach the bottom, don’t worry. These shirts look good if they have a few holes not laced at the bottom. Lace the other side in the same way and try on your new, fitted shirt.
As with all good DIY projects, you can add your own variations to this shirt to get the best fit and style. Check out our tips for success.
