Cut T Shirt
Boring T-shirt to T-sexy

This is a project from 99 Ways to Cut, Sew, Trim, and Tie Your T-Shirt into Something Special by Faith Blakeney. If you want to re-design a boring t-shirt this is a great way to do it.


You Will Need

  • How to make a lace-up top. Cut T Shirt - Step 1
    Step 1

    Lay out t-shirt flat. Cut along the bottom edge of the shirt so that it is rounded out at the edges (in the book this is called a hipster style).

    Also, cut the neck out of the shirt starting about 1 and a half inches from the shoulder seam. (See this photo for an example of what the top and bottom look like).

  • Step 2

    Flip the shirt over. Cut out a square out of the back of the shirt starting just below your shoulder blades. With square you cut out of the t-shirt cut into swirl starting on the edge and working your way into the middle of the shirt. It will end up as a long t-shirt string.

  • Step 3

    Cut 4 slits on the sides of the cut out square on the back of the shirt. Take the t-shirt string and thread through holes on the sides of shirt, tie at the bottom. And, then you have your new sexy shirt :)

I love this idea! This would be a really cute concert shirt alone, or an everyday shirt with something under it. Thanks!

Do you find this works better with a snugger fitting t-shirt rather than a very loose fitting one? Yours looks great and I notice it fits snuggly. I'm so excited to try this!!!

Too coooool! Thanks for posting. I'll be trying this one even though I'm too old to wear it myself. I'll make one for my daughter-in-law who will look fabulous in it, for sure!
