DIY: 5 min Tshirt Refashion

Supplies: Old Tshirt


Summer is not over yet and for this Florida girl the lovely warmth will stick around much longer.  Try this quick tshirt refashion that took me about 5 minutes and perfect for those last few trips to the beach/pool.
Cute for band and game shirts too, just add a bandeau. 

DIY below...


 Cut sleeves off...Start a little bit lower than the sleeve, the lower you go the more you show. Use the left over sleeve to cut a string for the strap...like this here


Cut shoulder seams...If you have a vneck don't cut the collar. For a crew neck, you can cut the collar off. 


Front: gradually cut the shoulder seams off starting from the sleeve as such. 


Back: Cut as such so it forms a gradually line to the side seam. Tip: use the previous cut as a pattern for even sides.



Back: Fold the sides and then fold over the top part...sew along where the pin is...


Use a continuous string/chain to attach from one point through the loop and to the other point. You can use a safety pin on the end of the string to glide through the loop. Sew the strings in place where pins are. Finish edges accordingly. 

I had some paint spilled on mine so what better way to fix then then a splash of Jacquard tie dying.

  4. If you have a vneck you don't need to but if it's a normal crew collar then yes cut it off.

  8. I tried it! The first steps were pretty easy. I accidentally cut the sleeves too low, so be careful of that. it was the string that gave me the most headache. I cut the sleeve like a spiral and used that as the string which actually worked really well! I had problems stringing it through the hole so I finally used a pen with a clip to help me. then I just had careless problems such as cutting the wrong end, getting the shirt twisted, etc. the end result was almost satisfying but the shirt was 2 sizes too big to begin with and i cut it too low so it ended up being too showy. I plan on trying again soon!! it really did make a cute shirt!

  13. With a crew neck collar, when I cut it, do I cut it into a v neck?
