these are a few that i made, and the last picture was my first attempt, so you know how easy it is to make!

1. take an old tee shirt, preferably oversized.

2. from the right sleeve [or left if you prefer], cut a slight curve to the bottom of the left sleeve [or right], under the left [or right] armpit. use chalk to mark if you wish to, before that.

3. measure your armpit length pit to pit [mine's 14 inches, so i cut out twice the amount, 28 inches, to go round the front & back].

4. cut out an elastic band with that width, do not include extra for the sewing bit. you want it tighter, not exposing.

5. hem your tee at the top, around 0.5 inches in [or depending on how thick your elastic band is], and leave a gap to thread the elastic band through.

6. stick a safety pin through one end of the elastic band and navigate through till your get both ends together.

7. sew it together.

8. close the hem of the tee and sew it.

9. voila! a new toga top (:

Even if you're not sewing savvy would u still recommend this? Sounds ridiculous I know but your shirts look amazing and I can't imagine myself making something that cute  Cheesy
