Braided Back Tee #4: DIY

Want a cute braided tank?

Grab a t-shirt, needle and thread, a pair of scissors and follow me.



Tutorial
Things you need.

  1.  Shirt (Mine was a large mens)
  2. Scissors
  3. Needle
  4. Thread 
  5. Chalk


Mark your shirt.
Front


 and 
The Back.

Cut the front.
 
 Cut the back.

 Take the front of your shirt and cut 3 pieces so you can braid it.


Braid both sides.

  Cut down the middle of the back of your shirt about 3 inches into your shirt.

 Tie it in a double knot.
 This is where you can adjust the shirt to fit you.

 Take each piece from the back and cut that into three pieces.

 Braid

 Tie off all 4 braids.

 Take your two front braids and criss cross them in the back,
 then pin them to the back of your shirt.
*here is another place where you can adjust the shirt to fit you.

Take your back braids and pin them up to the top braids.

With a needle and thread attach your braids and stitch your bottom  braids to the edge of the shirt.

 Trim the excess material.





 Now you have a cute little summer tank.
Have a wonderful Sunday.
Lots of <3,
Anne
