1 boring button up + 1 ugly tank = adorbs!
I bought these two shirts for 33c each at a yard sale. The tank top was horrendous. Absolutely terrible. It was shiny and made of some weird slinky material. Just...ugh. So I made this shirt for my office instead!

  • Step 1

    Cut the ugly tank top into strips of fairly even sizing. (It doesn't matter if they're not perfect.) Set them aside.

  • Step 2

    Pop the buttons off of the button-up. (It gets way too hard to sew over them otherwise.) Resize to fit if needed.

  • Step 3

    Pin the strips of ugly tank top to the inside opening (where the shirt used to close.) Fold them so that they ruffle nicely when you hold it vertically.

  • Step 4

    Sew over your pins (or pull them out as you get to them, whichevs!)

  • Step 5

    Try it out! I suggest belting it now that the buttons are gone (or you could reattach the buttons I suppose but that seems like a heckuva lot of work!)
