Project

Rib Cage T-Shirt

A few strategic cuts transform a simple white T-shirt into a skeleton-inspired Halloween costume. Complete the look with spook-tacular Exposed-Bone Jeans.

Materials

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Print front and back rib cage templates. Trim first page on solid line and match to dotted line on second page; tape together.

  2. Step 2

    Pinch front of white T-shirt at center of neck and pull forward, lining up sleeve and side seams, to create a fold down center front of shirt. Lay T-shirt flat on a cutting mat with this fold to the right.

  3. Step 3

    Spray repositionable adhesive on back of front rib cage template. Place on folded front side of T-shirt, lining up vertical line with fold.

  4. Step 4

    Cut horizontal rib lines with a small rotary cutter. Leaving T-shirt flat, cut curved areas with fabric scissors.

  5. Step 5

    Repeat steps 2 and 3 to create ribs on the back of the T-shirt, using the back rib template and lining up vertical line with back fold.

  6. Step 6

    Peel off templates. Unfold T-shirt and wear over a black shirt.

    Using your great templates and a Black Laundry Marking Pen applied the ribcage designs to both the front & back of a white t-shirt. Came great! Thanks!
