Do you have a t-shirt with a graphic on the front that you want to get rid of? You can cut it out and wear the t-shirt backwards as a backless top! Heres the t-shirt I started off with its a Gildan t-shirt, size medium, and made of 100% cotton.

Watch the video tutorial on YouTube: http://youtu.be/jDov3tU_oA0



1. Cut off neck and sleeves




2. Cut out the graphic starting at the neckline and now the front is the back of the shirt!



3. Use the sleeve you just cut off and cut out a skinny or wide strip up to your preference. If youre feeling creative, you can use a contrasting colour string or a different material (satin sash?)


4. Cut small holes in the left and right side near your shoulder blade



5. Thread the strip through both sides and tie a bow or knot


 
6. Cut the front neckline deeper to get rid of excess fabric


7. To create a v-neck, cut a small hole in the front of the shirt


8. Use a skinny string to scrunch up the front to create a v-neck


The final look!

Great idea! I think everyone has some of those free shirts floating around their closet.
