summer tank DIY

My apologies for the delay, but here is the DIY tutorial for the tank I wore in this outfit! It is so easy that even I did it, and am now tempted to turn a few more old tee's into summer tanks. Just make sure that you are putting the shirt back on & marking where you want to cut it at each step, so you don't end up with a super low neckline or really cropped shirt--unless that's what you want, I'm not here to judge. ;)

If you make one of these, I'd love to see how you style it! Link up in the comments & I'll add the links to this post for further inspiration. Have fun! xo.

edit: here's how I wore it!

holy cuteness! I'm loving this simple way to make a basic t-shirt into an adorable wearable piece! I've got a couple t-shirts in mind that might need to get this same treatment! Thanks for sharing! You are too cute!

P.S. I shared this post on my blog today as part of Saturday link love. Take a look if you like! :

Love this! Just curious to about what size was the original t shirt?

Anonymous said...

A good tutorial but when I tried to cut it my neck line was totally off and I had to throw away the shirt. I will probably have to measure next time. I am also thinking that another reason could be that my chest is very small.

super cute just made a cute tank out of an XL shirt i got for free from my university thanks!

mclicious said...

This is going to sound stupid, but the picture is showing the back of the shirt as being shorter than the front after the cut, right? So you're cutting the split up the front in order to tie it?
