Hey there

I once saw a guy on a TV show take a pair of scissors to a T-shirt and 20 seconds later it looked amazing and only from cutting slashes into it.  Huh

I have experimented a little, last night I attacked a very loose fitting razor backed T I had with horizontal cuts (from seam to seam) and then a vertical cut straight up the middle of all, I then tied the cut edges together - its worked quite well making a fitted top with a rock chick feel to it.

So really I just wondered if there is anyone out there who has experimented with cutting and knotting Ts etc and if you had any advice for me.

Fank you  Grin xx

A few years ago, I went to The Family Dollar, and my mom bought me this HUGE t-shirt. It had thin black and dark grey stripes. It was generally ugly, but I liked it,a nd wore it for pajamas before I got sick of the collar huring my neck (I'm used to wearing low cut shirts..ahem).

 So a few months ago, I found the shirt again. Seeing that it was still huge, and I was still waiting for my new sewing machine (which I have now) to come in the mail, I took my scissors, cut up the back of it, cut it into strips, and cut off the collar, and voila! I had a tubetop. I wear it with a black tank top, as I'm too shy to show that much skin, but it looks pretty cute. Just experiment. Try it with things you won't cry over if you mess it up.
