At some point this summer, my friend Molly and I found ourselves at Target.
Of course, you know what this means.  Lots of “oh, I want that!” and “look at these!” and “I wish I were a millionaire.”  Also, as you could guess, we ended up leaving with a handful of items that were not on any sort of “to-buy” list upon entering the store. And, clearly, the “twenty-minute trip” took well over an hour. Shocked, anyone? I didn’t think so.

The entire reason we went to Target was to find beer tank tops.  Molly had recently started working at a hip local bar as a hostess and the ‘uniform’ for employees is a tank top or t-shirt featuring the logo from a beer sold at this particular hot spot.   We couldn’t track down any tank tops at Target, but we did find some standard Men’s t-shirts with beer logos on them.  Molly decided to pick them up and add a bit of a personal flare.  When she walked into my living room with this Budweiser shirt, I begged her to let me shoot a tutorial of how-to turn a men’s t-shirt into a feminine styled shirt for THS.

DIY How-To: Turn a Men’s T-shirt into a Girly Top

What you need:

  • 1 t-shirt, which fits closely, but not too tightly
  • a pair of scissors

Step 1: put on the t-shirt. [and smile pretty.]

Step 2: Grab one side of the collar and pull away from your body, as if you are trying to stretch out the collar like a rock star.

Step 3: Continue to pull at the collar until you create a rip in the seam which holds the collar to the t-shirt.  Pull this rip apart until you create a round hole.

Step 4: Cut one line in the collar, removing it from the shirt, creating a type of pull strip of collar.

Step 5:  Pull the strip of collar away from the shirt, all the way around the collar area.

Step 6: When you reach the end of the collar strip, snip with scissors. [try to think of 1 million uses for the piece of fabric. my suggestions? kitten toy or fabric rose material]

  1. We used to do this with college tees all the time when I was in school. What better way to make the unisex tees you got for free look adorable?
