In high school, I loved both art and creative writing. This means I pretty much sketched and wrote alllllll the time. Sometimes my doodling and writing ended up on my clothes. I had a closet full of DIY customized clothing. (Didn’t every creative high school outcast?)
The other day I made myself a few quick skirts. I had enough of this dusty teal fabric to make two skirts, but who really wants two of the same exact garment? Borrrrrring! I decided to go all high-school-DIY on one of them and write all over it. I always have a hard time deciding just what to write on my garments, though. I’m usually too self-critical to wear my my own words as an outfit, so I narrowed it down to two others’ words. And, just like in high school, I couldn’t decide between a miniskirt of Bible quotes or Nirvana lyrics.
I ended up choosing Nirvana lyrics.
I used Marvy markers for the script. I haven’t washed it a million times yet, so I don’t know how well the markers hold up. I’ve heard good things about Marvy markers, though. I’m not too worried…..if the repeating “i think i’m dumb” words wash off eventually, I shouldn’t be too heartbroken.
