T-shirt reconstruction but with style

I wanted to make something a little different, but very easy to do. You can find how to attach sleeves from "Generation-T" or That 99 ways to trim, cut.....your shirt. The buttons on the neck (?) are optional.



  1. Step 1 1

    cut off collar and sleaves, but leave the seams in. grab the different colored shirt (I used a stripped one) and cutt off the sleeves and half the bottom shirt. The bottom shirt will be your collar. So adjust it to be comfortable around your neck.

  2. Step 2 2

    Pinn everything together. With the sleeves I used the inside seams and pinned them to the sleeve.

  3. Step 3 3

    Sew everything and don't be afraid to stop every now and then to check how it feels. One more thing for the collar (& this is what I did) sew it in but cut a slit down the middle.

  4. Step 4 4

    After you are done sewing...
    (I had to hand-sew so it took me a hella long time...those with sewing machines and know how to use it are very lucky >3<)
    ...take the slit on the turtle neck and place buttons..and then create button holes. Then you're done....if you've done things accordingly thenyou have a cool turtleneck that really doesn't have to be a tutrleneck...? Oh well if you have comments please tell me. )I like hearing from you all....*0*)
