A great summer T!
Here's a great halter to wear in the summer as a shirt, cover-up to the beach, or anywhere you can imagine!

The straps give you the option to make it a halter, tank, or racerback. I love that about this project!

    Lay your fitted shirt (or tank) inside the tee as high up as it goes. You're only need measurements for the bodice of the tee, so the neckline can go off the edge.

    Now cut a sort of triangle whose tip goes in the center of the tee. make one side go off the edge. Wow, I'm bad at explaining that. Just look at the picture.

    Now, all with right sides together, you sew. Sew up the edges and sew the top on. The top's two side points should overlap in the front. The rectangle part between the two triangles should go in the back.

    Sew these two strips any which way to the tops of the triangles.

    (You could also attach the other ends of the straps to the back of the shirt to make a tank top, or criss-cross them to make a racerback. I chose a halter, as it requires the least work!)
