What a tongue twister. I sat at my computer for a minute
and tried to think of an easier caption but nothing fit.
I am forever trying to re-invent the plain old t-shirt.
I have often said to myself "Why am I always trying to change a t-shirt.?"
I think the main reason is because a t-shirt is so accessible and everyone has one.
Another reason is because we lived on a very limited income when I was a young mother and I was always trying to find ways to spiff up my plain wardrobe super quick
and for as little money as possible.
So my obsession for t-shirt reconstruction was born.
Now here is one more.
Things you need.
- T-shirt this is a mens large ( I am 5'7 and 140 pounds)
- Small safety pin or Bobby pin
Cut your shirt under one arm curving up the the collar.
Cut off the sleeve.
Cut the two pieces apart.
Cut the down the middle of the shoulder.
*cut the front two pieces of your shirt 4 inches longer than the back two pieces.
Cut an extra strip of t-shirt one inch wide and about 24 inches long.
Stretch it out to make a long flexible string.
Cut a small slit in the bottom hem of your shirt.
Tie your string to a bobby pin or a safety pin, and thread it through the channel.
Tie your front two pieces in a double knot.
* work with it to make it look the way you want.
Connect the two pieces to the back two pieces.
tie in a bow, knot or however you want.
I let one of the ties slip down around my shoulder.
Wear with jeans, skirts, shorts, a bathing suit or whatever your little heart desires.
Have a fantastic weekend!
Lots of <3.
