5 Minute No-Sew Tee: DIY




I received this email  about a week ago from Lara Lori
Lara Lori 


Hi Anne,
I'm Lara from Italy!
I love your blog and I've read all your tutorials.
I want to say you: Thanks so much!!!
Your works are really inspiring...

Sorry if I make you waste time, but
I'd like to ask you if you think that is possible to realize DIY this top, that I've seen reading an Italian magazine.

Thanks!
I' m waiting for your reply if you have the time...and, why not, for a tutorial for this top on WobiSobi blog!!!!
Grazie grazie grazie



Here is my version of the  top Lara wanted. The  original picture is no longer available so I found another picture similar to the one Lara sent me.
 This top is similar but the original was not cropped like the one above.
Thank you so much Lara for your Email.
Tutorial below


 
 Tutorial
Things you need
  •  T-Shirt * I used a grey men's medium.
  • Scissors
  • Chalk
  •  Place the shirt on  a table
  • Mark the shirt with a piece of chalk.

  •  Cut out the collar  first
  •  Fold the shirt in half and then cut your sleeves
  • Cut open the top of the shoulders
  •  Tie them back together and adjust to the size you want.
 If you want the shirt to be cropped at the waist then all you need to do is 
cut the bottom of the shirt to the length  you want .
I left mine long because I am too old for a cropped tee ;)

 Thank you Lara for your Email, I hope this helps.
Have a wonderful Sunday.
Lots of <3,
Anne

  7. Hey! This is such a great idea, I'm definitely going to do this for some of my old T-shirts this weekend. The bows really add a cute, stylish touch. Would you mind if I reblogged this onto an article I'm writing about upcycling old T-shirts? Please contact me at blogjia12@gmail.com - thanks so much! Obviously, if you say okay, I'll source back to you.
