This looks so good with tye dye but it can take a boring ol gray shirt and make it a sexy tubey topey! ALWAYS KEEP YOUR SCRAPS!
Lay out you shirt flat on the floor
cut the sleeve hems off, repeat to other side. save them
cut the neck line and the shoulder seams off
now cut the seam on the shoulder of the sleeve's
layout the sleeve flat
From this point on DO NOT cut any more seams, these are holding the shirt together.start cutting up to the seam. In whatever sizes you want, you don't have to count the strips.
cut as close to the seam as possible
cut the whole sleeve and repeat on the other sleeve. Now to make the stripes curl just put your hand firmly on the shirt, grab the stripes and pull (one at a time is best)
lay the shirt out flat once more and cut down the center of the front
fold in half and start cutting both sides at once. cut straight and close to the seam and/or where the seam would be. now do it to both sides. Leaving the back alone
this is what it should look like when your done. Now tie the frontside ties ,then tie the arm holes ties together. put it on before you start tying and tie it that way so that it will form to your body naturally, not like you shoved yourself into it.
Now pick it up and tie it on yourself. This shirt is perfect if your weight fluctuates because you can just untie and retie to where it fits you!!
