Are you a girl who owns fantastic t-shirts, but feels manly when she wears them? So am I! Thankfully, after lots of online research and just a few experiments, I've found a great way to make manly t-shirts feminine. Here's how I do it:
For this project you will need:
A Manly T-shirt
A Safety Pin
A Sewing Machine
Step 1: Cut the collar off of the shirt. Cut as close to the stitching as you can!
Step 2: Cut a slit about an inch long in the center front of your new "collar".
Step 3: Turn shirt inside-out, fold the collar edge over, and pin all the way around.
Step 4: Sew the fold as close to the edge as you can get.
Make sure you're leaving a little tunnel of space between the fold and your stitching!
When I reach the front again, I like to put an unnecessary line of stitching, just so it looks uniform.
You might have puckers and wrinkles - that's okay! But if you really can't stand it, just pick it out and fix it. :)
Step 5: Cap sleeves! Cut the sleeves at a slant, making the sleeves as long or short as you like.
The remnant should look roughly like a triangle.
Step 7: Make t-shirt yarn (The coolest stuff in the world)! Stretch that little piece of fabric until it's long and pretty!
Step 8: Attach your safety pin to one end of the yarn, and thread it through the tunnel you made in the collar.
Step 10: Tie ends in a secure knot, and cut off the excess. Hide the knot, and enjoy!
