Most of my wardrobe consists of t-shirts (since they're cheap), so I'm always looking for quick ways to mix them up a little. Also, I can't sew, so I usually just take a pair of scissors to T and call it a night. Here are a few that I've cut up (somehow not all the pictures came out the same size):

A Harry Potter shirt that was a little too short-

Back:


A T-shirt from a local band that was too small-

Back:


A halter made from a waaaay too big blue t-shirt that used to have a pocket on the front-
Front:


Back:


I got most of my ideas from a book called Generation T. They're not really anything special, I just thought I'd share some ideas.  Smiley

great ideas! i've got tons of ill fitting tshirts to experiment with!
a question: how did you do the criss cross lace up thingy on the shirt in the middle photo? is it just decorative or does it come undone?
thanks!

No, it actually unlaces. I cut a big dip down the back of the shirt (after cutting out the neck first & widening it), then I poked little holes up each side of the dip just big enough to fit the lacing through. The fabric I used to lace it up was the extra fabric I cut out of the back of the shirt. I had to keep cutting around in a circle to keep the fabric together as one big strip (it wasn't big enough lengthwise to cut across once and make a piece long enough to use). It takes forever, and unless you're really desperate for matching fabric (as I was) I don't recommend it. You can use another old t-shirt or ribbon, etc. for the lacing and it should turn out about the same.
