No Sew T-Shirt Refashion

I have done so many t-shirt refashions! If only I had pictures of them all. T-shirt refashions were my go-to fashion in my twenties. I would search for mens size large t's and turn them into everything from tank tops to dresses. There are so many options! Recently I acquired 4 new t-shirts that just wouldn't do as is. All of them are standard style t's- really straight large mens style. Kind of boring in my opinion. So instead of not wearing them I decided to refashion them into something I love. The first one Im going to show you is the shirt I got at the Blazers playoffs. Its way too big on me but I would like to be able to wear it to the next game I go to so I can show my support for my favorite basketball team! Here is a before- and these images won't to get too fancy guys, as Im battling an epic cold!


The first thing I did was lay it flat and make the neck hole larger:


Next I turned it over and cut a V into the back and a straight line down the center. Then I cut from the straight line in the center two inches towards the sides all the way down on both sides, about two inches apart:


I tied those pieces together, which causes the back to gather. The results look like this:



If I wasn't sick and exhausted I would style this up with a cute tank or bralet underneath. I have a band t-shirt that I did this with that ended up being much tighter. So the results may vary depending on the shirt. To see more images and description of the process please visit my blog post about it here!
