Yesterday we attended a Railhawks game. If you are a fan of my other blog Adventures of Frugal Mom, then you know what big soccer fans we are. This year we were able to save up and buy season tickets. Being that the games are held outdoor and we live in North Carolina it gets hot. Just because I am sweating doesn’t mean I can’t be stylish doing it. I have been looking for cute clothes to wear to the games. I mean I don’t want to wear the same clothes all the time. So today I decided on something different.
Surfing the web and my favorite addiction Pinterest, I came across a no sew top that said it took less than 10 minutes to make.
So I thought okay I will try it. I figured this would be a Pinterest fail instead of two thumbs. So looking through my stacks of t-shirts, I decided to experiment on one of the many Railhawks t-shirts I have. It turned out better than I thought. So then I had to make another one show you how. So here is how you can make a stylish halter top t-shirt makeover for less.
The items you will need to make this are a t-shirt, chalk and some scissors. I suggest using a man’s t-shirt it gives you a little more room. First, start by laying the shirt flat.
Draw a line with the chalk around the armholes.
And make a v from the corners of the collar downward.
Next step is to cut the sleeves off.
Then cut along the v only on one side. So your shirt will end up looking like this.
Next, flip your shirt over
Then with your chalk draw a line from the edge of the collar down past the armhole.
Cut the lines on one side of the shirt.It will end looking like the shirt above. Then you will cut off the collar part.
Cut off the band around the collar and then make a cut straight down on the smaller piece of fabric. Like shown in the picture below.
Flip the shirt back over so the front is facing you. Then take the two long pieces and make a loop in the front of the shirt like this
To help you see it better, I put it on a stand
Next, flip over to the back and tie the back. Tie opposite sides together like this.
This is just one side tied together.
This is the finished product. Here I am with one of the Railhawks players after the game on Sunday afternoon.
This shirt took me under 10 minutes to make, and it kept me cool during a hot Sunday afternoon game. So you see taking an existing item from my closet I was able to give an old t-shirt new life and it cost me nothing. See you can have champagne style on a bare budget.
