DIY T-shirt to Racerback
I was feeling a little crafty tonight and came across this picture on Pinterest.
Unfortunately, the link leads to absolutely nothing. Boo. So I thought I’d just give it a try on my own! So here we go!
Start out with an old t-shirt. (stretchy ones work best)
Don’t laugh. I’ve had this shirt for a while and wore it when I played Martha Cox in a production of High School Musical. Don’t laugh at that either.
Then, measure and draw out the lines for where you want to cut on the back.
Then, make sure you put marks on the front so that the end points are even. But, the front lines that you draw need to be closer to the edges so that you cover up the essentials. 😉
Next, make cut along the lines. Here’s the front cut out…
And here’s the back…
Now, you can leave it as it, or you can do what I did and cut some strips from the extra fabric to cinch the back up a little bit. Here’s what it’ll look like.
And there you have it! It really wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, and now I have a new workout tank for the gym!
I’m probably going to be doing this to a few other shirts I have!
Hope this post helps! Have fun crafting! 🙂
