This tutorial is great for beginners because it requires no sewing! All you really need is a sharp pair of scissors, an old tee, and about 15 minutes!
- A t-shirt that’s too big for you or approximately 1 yard of stretch/knit fabric
- Sharp scissors
Lay your shirt out on a flat surface. As always, I recommend trying this on an old shirt first, in case you make mistakes. Then you can use that as a pattern for your good shirt.
Mark your tee like so. You might want to use a tank top as a guide for where to place the shoulder straps. All 3 sets of straps (halter, bust, and waist) should wrap around to the back.
So the back will look something like this. You can add more rows of straps if you want. 1 strap, 5 straps, 10 straps. It’s all up to you. Just make sure the straps are long enough to tie in back. You can always cut them shorter once you know they reach.
Cut where you’ve marked. The end product, laid flat, will look like this. You’re done! You don’t need to worry about finishing the ends, because knit fabric doesn’t fray.
