Make a Tank Top from a Guy’s T-shirt

You will need:

T-shirt

Tank top (for reference)

Scissors

Pen

Step 1: Make reference marks

Turn the t-shirt inside out and lay it flat, front side up.

Lay the tank on top of the shirt and make marks with the pen showing the neck line depth and strap thickness for reference.

Remove the tank and draw lines connecting the pen marks to follow while cutting.

Step 2: Cutting the t-shirt

Cut the neck out of the t-shirt following the pen marks. I cut the front of the shirt first then the back separately.

Following your pen marks for the straps, cut the sleeves off of the t-shirt, cutting both sides of the shirt at the same time.

Turn the shirt right-side out and set aside.

Step 3: Making the ties.

Take one of the cut-off sleeves and cut it along the bottom seam.

Open the sleeve up and cut 1” thick strips along the longest length of the sleeve. I used 2 strips.

Step 4: Tying the back straps together.

Take one of the strips and starting about 3” from the top seam of the shirt, start wrapping the two tank top straps together moving down as you go.

Tie a knot in the first strip to hold in place.

Take the second strip of fabric and repeat. Tuck the loose ends in.

The END!
