|Original Shirt: pre-makeover|
What I don't love is the volunteer t-shirts - the art is adorable, but they're "unisex" t-shirts. Why do they call them "unisex"? They are really just Men's t-shirts that women also wear. They are boxy and unflattering. So...every year, I get out my scissors and re-design them! Every year at the event, both friends and random strangers stop me and ask me how I made my shirt, so I've decided to post a "how to".
|Cut along the lines that you made from your tank top to form your new tshirt. |
At this point, I always try the shirt on to see if I want to make adjustments to the cut.
|Take an old Tshirt (I saved the one from the previous year) |
and cut it into strips that are about 4" long and roughly 3/4" wide.
|Begin tying the strips along the straps of your new tank top.|
|Cut small holes 1/2 " from the edge along the neckline of your tank, |
then thread your fabric strips through each hole and knot.
|Repeat along the arm hole in the front. Continue this process around the neckline in the back too. I don't typically do this around the armholes in the back.|
|Tank top in progress. The armholes still need to be completed in the front.|
|Voila! Cute new tank top from a boxy Men's tshirt!|
