Attempted Tee-shirt Remake

22 Feb

There are plenty of people out there that are able to refashion old or ill-fitting clothing into something new and stylish. I’m not sure that I am quite ready to join that group, but last night I tried my hand at a t-shirt refashion.

George had ordered two different sizes of a bargain bin t-shirt from Target, and didn’t end up liking either one. Since he didn’t return them in time, I got an opportunity to try my hand at restyling a tee into a racer back.

I found the one racer back shirt I own and used it as a guideline to trace on top of the smaller Target tee. I took great care to measure out each side to make sure it was even (the stripes were very helpful with that). Once I cut out the pieces, the arm holes were just too big. The shirt looked goofy, and I knew I would never wear it. In my haste to get the shirt off, I forgot to take a picture.

I couldn’t just give up there, though. Next, I decided I would try to make it into a halter. I cut straight across the back. I used the extra back to continue two long strings from the top of the shirt. Too nervous to ruin the shirt by cutting the front neckline lower, I left it reasonably high.

I am not sure if I like this redesigned halter tee. I can’t really picture wearing it out, but I might change my mind for a hot summer day. What do you think?
