DIY: Cut Off Tank

Today is another DIY! YAYYYY!!! 
We're all very excited, right? So, I know this may seem easy (and it IS!) but I figured I'd show you how to cut the sleeves off a T shirt to turn it into a tank that is cool and breezy for summer, especially since a trend right now is to wear loose tanks and bandeaus! This is an easy way to jump on the band wagon. :)

  • T-shirt (I got mine from Walmart for $7.50)
  • Scissors
  • Bandeau or Bralet

First make sure the shirt is laid out flat with the sleeve seams lined up (on top of one another). Next,  hold the fabric tight together as you cut on the inside of the seams.

This will create a raw edge. Fix any mistakes you've made by trimming the excess pieces and then slightly pull on the sleeve. This will cause the raw edge to curl within itself and make the edge look neater
Always wear a bandeau underneath (or even a tank top). Stay classy! 
And that's it! Easy peasy, right? If you don't feel too confident in your skills, try cutting a shirt you don't necessarily care about for practice, then move on to the real thing. I hope you enjoyed and let me know if you have tried this before and how you like it. :)

  2. This idea is awesome and the cut off tank top that you created is looking superb. I also have many t-shirts lying ideal in my wardrobe and now I know what to do with them. Thanks for the inspiration. If you have some more ideas for recreating stuff with existing clothes, please let me know.
