i love making halternecks coz its requires the least hassle!
no sleeves or anything to sort out Cheesy
so here is my second project and i love it. its such a great fit.
tell me what you think of it anyways!
a bit messy round the top edges, but i think it looks good like this!
 

and the back!




MY FIRST (SORT OF) TUT!

Now this tut is using two different tee shirts, coz id cut half of the clash tee off and threw away the rest of the tee for some reason (no, i don't know why either!)

1) First of all I cut the neck and sleeves off the original tee shirt.

2) I then put the tee shirt on and drew on in pencil where I wanted the neckline to come to. Just use it from where the tee shirt already sits on your neck from cutting out the neck hole, so from those bony bits below your neck (I'm not quite sure what they are called! I want to say shoulder blades but I'm probably wrong.)

3) I drew on where I wanted the edge of the fabric under my arms to come to (where it comes up from the back of the top and then connects to the halter neck... the 'armhole' bit... if that makes it any clearer lol)

4) Stand up fully, and draw a line where you want the top to come to length-wise, leaving a bit extra space to seam it up.

5) I then took the tee shirt off and drew in the lines I couldn't reach such as how thick I want the halterneck bit to be around my neck. If you have a full tee shirt you would also draw where about you want it to go on your back (Use the 'armhole' lines as a guide) or you could just cut the back panel out. (but be careful not to cut your halterneck bit off!)

6) Cut around your lines that you've drawn, and try on again and make any adjustments.

7) Sew the bottom seam up so its all nice (if you cut it at all)(you'd want to do this if your using a well fitting top for the back half.. (see next step) as it would have a nice bottom seam on the back and not on the front)

Ignore these bits if you have a whole top!

Cool I then took a different stretchy white top, that fitted me well, and cut the top part off, so there were no more sleeves or neckline, and so you have a sort of tube of fabric. I did this so i didn't have to bother seaming up all the bottom, and just do one half... lazy me.

9) Then cut the up each side on the seams, so your left with a panel of material, and seam the top of the fabric panel.

10) Attach it to the front part of the top, making sure it is parallel with the bottom of the front and you've attached it on the right side (ive done both those part wrong before, coz im a goon)

I left the neckline and that raw edges, but feel free to zoom them up on your machine too.
 
Hey presto lovely halterneck top!

That looks great!  Any tips for me if I try to make one?  Did you do any sewing?  or just cutting?

Thanks for the tips.  I'd love to see a picture of the back of it if you are so inclined.  Am I understanding right that the front and back are made from two different shirts? Huh

the raggedy cutting in the front definitely works for the shirt.  it fits and i like it.

ok, and am i hearing correctly that i am indeed NOT the only person in the world who has been left with only the front of a tshirt and has no idea why on earth they did that???

the shirt looks great!  i'm jealous - my clash shirt is currently covered in moth holes (and is the only shirt i own to have this problem) and bleach stains.  if i can pull something half this awesome out of it, i'll consider myself lucky.

Yay! The Clash! I like the way the shirt has rough edges on the front it makes it seem very punk-esque.
