hello, thanks for checking this out, this is my first how-to project EVER!! so if there are any problems or questions, please ask me. sorry if the pictures are unclear!!!! have fun and good luck [:
Megan Nicolay revolutionized the T-shirt. She repurposed it, reinterpreted it, reinvented it—and created the #1 craft book in the nation, Generation T, which continues to dominate. Now she explores new ways to slash a tee, scrunch a tee, and sew a tee with Generation T: Beyond Fashion. A collection of 120 projects for every occasion, it takes the humble yet ever-malleable tee in dozens of new directions—from baby gifts to pet accessories, stuff for the home, the car, the road, the boyfriend. The rallying cry is: Don't buy; DIY. The result is hip, imaginative, crafty, and very green. There's a basic primer on techniques—knotting, sewing, braiding, lacing—plus a full tutorial on embellishing. And then an amazing range of projects. There’s fashion, of course: all-new ...© 2013 Megan Nicolay / Workman · Reproduced with permission.
okay, first off, i wanted to let you know that i didnt think up of this idea, Megan Nicolay did! its in the book shown in the picture, and its on page 294. i think there was a contest before where the prize was this book, so if you won, kuods to you!
choose a shirt that you kinda like but fits awkwardly or you dont like the logo on it. in my case, it was both haha
with your chalk or pen or whatever, make a dot next to both sides of the neckline and in the center of the hem at the bottom. connect the dots to form a triangle
cut out the triangle
now cut off the sleeves, including the seams
make sure when you wrap a piece around you thigh, that it doesnt overlap. if it does then just trim the raw edge until it doesnt overlap anymore. BUT DONT CUT OFF TOO MUCH LIKE ME T^T you'll end up with leggings that are quite tight -__-
pick up your chalk again and make dots all long the outer edge, one inch from the side and 1.5 inches apart. do the same to the place where the sleeve used to be
take a t-shirt strip (preferably cut from the bottom of a really big shirt)(again, this strip has to be LONG) and stretch the crap out of it, because you need a really long strip. put safety pins at both ends of the strip.
thread the strip through the hem opening, if this makes sense D:
lace down the legging like its a shoe
take another t-shirt strip and cut it in half, using the half to lace down the other side
and now you DONE!! wear them as legging under a skirt or dress, or as legwarmers [: so cutee
