I modified the neckline of this shirt and cinched it with a ribbon:


This is a totally no-sew 20-minute empire waist T-shirt recon:


The tie in the middle is the bottom hem of the shirt and the ties on the sleeves are the bottom hems of the sleeves.

Yeah--I cut two slits a half inch apart under each boob and then cut a few more on the sides and back to hold the belt in place. Then I just cut the bottom hem off the shirt, threaded it through the middle like belt loops and tied it in the back.

I wore it last night and one shoulder kept falling down, and I decided I liked it better that way--sort of Flash-dancy.
