T-shirt recon without sewing!

Inspired by this video posted in ThreadBanger, I transform a t-shirt using only my scissors (without sewing). The original T-shirt was this:

1- Fisrt, I cut the neck about 3cm away from the original neckline, as you can see in the picture:

2- I cut two strips at the bottom of the t-shirt. This way, I made the t-shirt shorter (it was very long) and I got two strips that I’d use later on:

3- I cute the sleeves along the length, without detach them from the t-shirt, as you can see in the picture:

4- I made two small cuts at both sides of the t-shirt, at waist level.  Then, I put one of the strips through both holes.

6- Finally, I cut the other strip in half and with the two resulting strips I tied the shoulders of the t-shirt.

7- To wear it, you only have to tight the t-shirt to the waist with the strip, and made a bow  behind.  This is the result:

  1. Buenas! Acabo de llegar a tu blog vía t-shirt surgery. Sólo quería comentarte que me gustan mucho tus ideas, está bien encontrar colegas españolas en esto de la “customización” de ropa, que parece que todo el movimiento está al otro lado del charco (Aunque no me di cuenta de que eras española hasta que leí el post de bolsa=caca 🙂

    Un saludo desde asturias!

    • Gracias! Qué alegría encontrar una vecina española! Supongo que sabrás que en España tenemos la comunidad “cirugía textil”, pero funciona muy mal… no tiene vidilla 😦 Por eso me alegro también de encontrarte (o mejor dicho, de que me encuentres). Saludos!!! (Por cierto, yo soy de Vigo, chica del norte también ;))
