this is my first post Smiley
i love this community but i never got around to posting.
if you need a tutorial for this i'd be happy to give one.
the straps can be tied in many ways cos they're kinda long...

here's the initial tee...


and the front and the back of the finished tee!all in 15 minutes Smiley

HEY!AWESOME THANK YOU!
it's really easy,

1)fold the t-shirt in half.using tailor's chalk mark it up as shown in the illustration.
then cut the t-shirt as such. the 3.5" is just a rough guide you can give and take depending on how big and long your tee shirt was in the first place.just don't make them straps too thin/thick else they won't look that good.
for the bodice keep in mind your measurements like armhole and bust/waist.i folded a tank top in half and used it as a guideline. Smiley

2) you can hand sew or machine sew the straps together to form two long straps, as shown.

3) i cut the back into a deep v but it is entirely up to you.

4) attach the straps to the back as such (marked by the black arrows that say "here")

Are the sides sewn together?

I love this! It's ultra versatile.  I'm always looking for ideas for recons (I want to open a store here that's all reconned clothing and accessories).

I love this!  Thanks for the tute!  I really want to make it today, I'll have to go look for a shirt . . .  I'm not sure there would be enough support in the front for me though.
