My mom gave me one of my dads old XL shirt and I had it lying around on my messy sewing table for a week or so. Since weekends bored the crap out of me, and I had a day off yesterday making it feel like the worst day of the week (Sunday) I decided to cut up the shirt and make something, yay!
I don't have a before picture, but it was your typical t-shirt.

I pretty much chopped off below the sleeves, then cut around them, cut the neckline

The top part wasn't as wide as the lower part, so while sewing I pulled at the top part and that's how this happened. I'm pretty pleased

The back. I pulled elastic through the back part. And criss crossed the straps because it hung way too loose in a normal strap way. Ignore my veeeery poor sewing. I was lazy, and rushed it. It's horrible, but no one will ever see the back anyway, so no matter

I'm actually pretty pleased with how it came out. Next one will be a bit different, and a lot better.

Great look! I am pretty much in love with this style and might have to try something similar to it for myself Smiley
