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 7: Pull at one side of the newly made collar area to stretch it out.
Step 8: Switch sides and try again.
Wasn’t that easy!? Adorbs!
