I took a long sleeved shirt (that was old and streched out) and turned it into a short sleeved backless tshirt! I can't decided if I will ever wear it or not.



Thanks for the comments everyone Smiley
here is a mini tutorial (sorry about the terrible pics)

*First cut a straight line up the back on the shirt, through the back layer only.
*next turn the shirt inside out and match up the sides you just cut through (inside out remember!)

*Cut a half moon shape out of the shirt.

*turn the shirt right side out and overlap the edges and pin in place. Do this to both the top and bottom.
-this part is tricky to get the shirt to fit correctly. Try the shirt on before sewing to make sure the shirt will not be too tight/too loose.

*Sew where you pinned (in a triangle shape, this helps keep the shirt from loosing it's shape in the back) http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y79/poseursteph/HPIM0680.jpg


Then wear it!!!

(whoops I made mine a little too loose!)

Not only should you wear it, but you should give a tutorial or explain what you did. I think it's awesome!
