Le Blog de Sushi: DIY cavour print tee (sold)

{ DIY cavour print tee (sold) }

Last week I blogged about this tee, quite smitten after seeing it on Michelle Yue. However they cost USD $85 each so I decided to make one for myself!




♥ Sportsgirl chunky knit hooded sweater
♥ DIY print tee
♥ American Apparel shiny leggings
♥ eBay.co.uk studded flats

I designed the text in Photoshop (took ages to get it right!) then tracked down a place to get it printed. I'm very pleased with the finished product but have decided to sell this one as the tee isn't as oversized as I want it to be.

Size: small (chest 36in, length 26in)
Material: 100% cotton
Price: International USD $40 ($33 plus $7.00 for Airmail
Australia AUD $45.50 (includes Regular Postage)
Note: price covers all material/printing costs. You will receive the same tee as in the last photo.

Please email me at leblogdesushi@gmail.com if you are interested!

OOH I've always wanted to draw up some designs and get my own tees printed, except my photoshop skills arent that great. Do you know where to get more fonts?
Well done ! It looks so cool!

ohphillipa - haha thanks ;)

Ashita - thank you! Hope you had a great one too x

denise - mmmmm that's a good idea! x

joeyc - I usually find them by googling 'free fonts'. It is hard to come by good free ones though! x

Well, the first CAVOUR T-shirts I printed was made with hand cut stencils, it gives a more handmade touch and actually it makes a difference in the final result. Using fonts in Photoshop creates a result that is too stiff for my taste.

Just an advice for future D-I-Y-projects...
