Scissors has been my best friend ever since. Why? Because I always have a heart for crafts. Anything artistic related in cutting really interests me. I remember getting high grades in arts during elementary and high school because of my habit of cutting out papers. Until now that I am full grown-up, I still attached in this habit of cutting out almost anything that I want to get in my scissor’s teeth. One evidence is today’s revamped shirt, cut out to make it a tank top.
I got this t-shirt almost 5 years ago as an exchange gift back in our 4th year high school Christmas party. It was one shirt that I won’t mind to let go in case this experiment doesn't end up great because a far from being old, it got some stain in lower center part. Yes, you've heard this was an experiment. I haven’t sure of doing this and I just give it a try. It turned out pretty good so I think I could give it another try next time! J All you need is a shirt, a scissor and a tie or even a remnant of clothes just like what I use.
Cut out the neckline of your shirt followed by the sleeves. Cut outside of the sleeve lines. Imagine the shape of a sando when doing this part.
Get a tie or a remnant of cloth. The one I am using here is a ribbon from one of my top. Tie the back part of the shirt just as shown in the picture below.
And that's it! Your new tank top is ready! It just took me 3 minutes to do this. Easy right?
Time to fit it of course! I am not really wearing sleeves tops because I personally don't like what my shoulder and arms looks like when wearing it so. #inferioritycomplex
Just in case you're like me that wants to look great in a tank top, it'll depend on how toned your arms are! I found the image below just this morning that rings my mind for a right timing because I am posting this DIY Tank Top tutorial! To help shape your arms for pretty sleeveless tops, try the following exercises!
