T-shirt Mania 2; The Tunic

Hello Refashion Co-op. I had a l-o-n-g t-shirt on my hands here. It fit well but it was extra long for some reason. I decided to use that length and make a tunic style t-shirt.


 I started by cutting off all the edges and hems. I saved them to use later.


I cut the sleeves at an angle. I didn't want all that sleeve fabric under the arms.


I made 2 little holes at edge shoulder. I used the strips of fabric I had cut off the sleeves as string and tied up the sleeves.


Tying up the sleeves made nice ruffled cap sleeves. 


The long strip of fabric from the bottom of the shirt became a tie around the waist.


The shirt was a lot more fun to wear after, but just as comfy.


Thanks for reading, for more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.
