This is a really fun and easy project to do and can make use of large (and sometimes unwearable) t-shirts! The only tool you need is a pair of sharp scissors.
I found this great t-shirt at Target in the men’s section. Of course, I always like the men’s clothing better, but never fit into anything without alteration.
First, I measured about how long I wanted the shirt to be. I added about two inches to the desired length since the alteration might pull it shorter. Then I cut off the bottom edge.
I then cut off both of the sides completely, following the curve of the arm – again measuring the size to fit my body.
Taking the bottom piece that I had previously cut, I cut one side seam and removed the hem. Then cut the long piece in half to make two long strips.
Returning to the shirt, I carefully cut small holes along the front and back sides of the T-shirt, making sure to keep the front and back in line together, starting from underneath the arm hole.
I then took one of the two long strips and began to thread it through the holes on one side, weaving them back and forth like a shoelace and knotting it at the bottom. Repeating the same on the other side.
I cut off the neckline hem and used the used the extra pieces from trimming the long strips to cinch the top of the shoulders for an additional detail.
and VOILA! a funky twist on a simple Tee!
