Racer Back Tee DIY #3 Three braid back.

This Racer Back Tee has three braids in the back. 
This is just another version of #1 basic, racer back tee.
Things you need.

  1. Black v-neck  Tee ( mine is an extra large, but you can use any size)
  2. Scissors
  3. Chalk
  4. Needle and thread ~the same color as the shirt.
 Use the chalk to trace a line on the shirt.
cut off the sleeves

This is how I cut the back.

Cut the back into three equal sections.

Cut each section into three more equal parts.

 Braid each section

  now you have three braids

pin each braid to the underside of collar .

 and  hand stitch it,
trim off the excess material.


And that is all there is to it.
 A great bathing suit cover up.

Happy Sunday everyone.
Lots of <3,


  1. So in a week I'm leaving for Vegas and instead of spending a ton of money on some new "hot" outfits I am totally gonna make this shirt!! Thank you for posting this!!

  2. Wonderful! Absolutely to do!


  3. This is really cute - I've been looking for t-shirt redos to make souvenir shirts into something more feminine and attractive.

  4. Oh my gosh, this is adorable! I'm totally going to try it!

  5. this is awesome! and it seems easy to make!

    1. super easy and can be changed up in so many ways.
      thank you :)

  6. I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee your blog ;) follow mine if you have some extra time :)

  7. Great Idea! Love the braided back look... I'll try it as soon as possible....Thanks!

  8. Question: On the back cut view (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-vBnygPNGwDc/T-expSAZA1I/AAAAAAAAJuo/WrYw9Asl9BM/s640/braid+back.jpg)it appears that the collar is being cut off. But then in this picture (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-OmZisll2-1I/T-et_4mebWI/AAAAAAAAJuA/2onG57gW1l0/s640/braid12.jpg) it appears to still be there so that the braided sections can be sewn to it. Should the whole collar stay in tact while cutting the three sections?

  9. wow so nice


  10. Just finished making this and it looks great! A good quick way to refresh a too-large shirt.

  11. LOVE LOVE LOVE this creative Idea.....you are very talented. Thank you for sharing the HOW TO -this is very kind of you. J

  12. This is such a cute look, but would it be okay to do it with a crew-neck t-shirt?
