We wrote earlier this week about scale and patterns, and how we reduced and enlarged our New Leaves stencil artwork to create graphic variations of the design. One of our projects that looks at scale is a series of DIY Unisex T-shirts. The shirts feature our New Leaves stencil in five different sizes and can be worked in a variety of techniques including quilting, reverse appliqué, backstitch reverse appliqué, and negative reverse appliqué. We used a chain stitch for the DIY Mori and DIY Novus T-shirts, the first time this technique example has been shown in our DIY Sewing Kits.
All of our DIY Unisex T-shirts are photographed in our traditional men’s fit (above). However, we find that many women like both styles for themselves: choose from a more fitted Women’s silhouette (below on the left) or a more relaxed, casual Unisex fit (below on right). Choose your fit in the dropdown box at checkout.
We documented the process of design and creation with ASUS.
