I know that rockabilly projects for men are far and few between, so this is the first of 3 projects geared towards men. I'll post one a week over the next few Saturdays. I'd like to present the DIY for a Grease T-Shirt. My favorite musical piece from the film Grease is "Greased Lightning".

What You Will Need:
- Black T-Shirt
- 1 package Round Studs (with prongs)
- Ruler or Tape Measure
|A t-shirt and round studs. Easily found at craft and fabric stores.|
|Roll the sleeves 4 times, just like I have.|
|Gently push a stud through the top crease of the sleeve, holding the roll in place.|
|You can easily push the prong backs down with your fingernail.|
|From the top stud, measure and mark 1" to 1-1/2" increments. This is where you will place your studs.|
|Push your studs through and close the prongs on each mark you made. I used 1" increments here.|
|Once you're done with the front half of the sleeve, be sure to get the backside.|
|Here is the finished t-shirt. Just like Travolta's!|
If you would like one of these shirts, I have 5 on etsy (1 Med, 2 Large, 2 XL). Click Here for the Etsy Shop.
