Alright, I'm ususally not very good with figuring these things out so how do you make this type of shirt?



Do you think just taking a tshirt and reconstructing it would work? Like, cut off the sleeves, and dut down the collar, then sew the new sleeves and collar and attach?

See, it sounds reasonable but whenever I think I have something like this figured out, it turns out I'm wrong and my project turns out terribly...hehe  Embarrassed

Has anyone ever made something like this?

i think its lycra by the looks of the sleeves.

if not, at least a very stretchy knit.

I would think t shirts wont give you the same effect.

yes, you can use t-shirts to make a shirt similar to this, and the process would be similar to what you described.  if you take the yoke and sleeves off of this shirt, it would pretty much be a tank top.  so grab a tank top and use that as a guide on a t-shirt for cutting.  then you need some sleeves and a yoke that will fit into the scoopneck part of your tanktop.  it might take a few rounds to get it perfect, but it's do-able.

Thanks! I think I'm going to try that.
