Ladies Ballpark Apparel on a Budget
I show you how to be a ballpark hottie for $15 or less!
Can you believe it’s already been over a week in spring training? I’m getting super jealous of all the fans and bloggers posting pictures of all the warm weather and baseball festivities! I’m still stuck in Ohio cold at the moment, but I’ll make do with this hot Dodgers shirt! It’s LaLawonderful!
The design for this t-shirt was inspired by the book, Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt.
Follow the steps below for a unique spin on the everyday MLB shirt:
1. I ordered this shirt off of MLB.com in the clearance section for $8.58 in a small. I chose this shirt because it had a female cut to it and I wanted a form fitting shirt for this design. Honestly, I was surprised by how cheap this shirt was because on it’s own it’s adorable!
2. I flipped the shirt inside out and drew my cut lines in chalk. I used a piece of paper to help make the lines straight(ish).
3. Next I cut along the lines and cut the collar off.
4. Now is the somewhat tricky part, braiding up the back of the shirt. If you saw my Cleveland Indians‘ post you saw me do this up the front of the shirt. To make the braid you take the bottom strip and pull it over the next strip, making a loop. Then grab the next strip up and continue this looping motion until you get to the top. On the final strip, cut it in half and tie a knot so it stays. Then fold the knot under the top of the shirt. You can also opt to sew it.
5. Once you have the top knotted, gently tug on the braid to loosen it up and throw the shirt on for your final result:
I absolutely love this shirt, so much so that I wore it when I visited Dodger Stadium last July. A few girls came up and asked me how I made it. Well ladies, this is a bit delayed, but here you go! If you’re not into showing this much back, try putting a Dodger blue (or your favorite team’s color) shirt underneath. And if you do opt to go all out, remember sunscreen for sure. Hopefully the lovely Dodger fans Emma and Alyssa Milano approve!
