I was wondering does anybody have any advice in reconstructing a t-shirt into a halter vest?? Like a vest, but in the back its halter style, Here is some idea of what I am talking about.


Don't really want the back to look like that, well not the tie part of it.



Thanks to all the craft ppl who can help.

I think reconstructing a vest would be easier.

I agree - go to the men's section and grab a vest!  Actually, it should be pretty easy to do (cut out the back, shorten it up).

I have a pattern for a vest almost like this - minus the tie back, but that could easily be altered.  Butterick #4915, view C is a halter.

actually, a lot of vintage vests ARE halters, try shopping around for one that you can copy.

Using a t-shirt?

**Disclaimer**

I have not reconned a Tee, nor have I ever made a vest. I am imagining this, so it may not work. I assume no responsibility for damaged shirts, anger, dismemberment or death in the attempt of this recon.

**end disclaimer**

Ok, if you're still reading Grin I could see leaving the neckband of the Tee on, cutting a triangle out of the back, serging the cut part, then cutting the arm parts off, and the belly part, then using some of that leftover material to make the vest button, serging all raw edges.

If you attempt, use a really crappy shirt you don't like Cheesy.
