DIY: How to Make a T-Shirt Halter Top

How to Make a T-shirt Halter Top
When I first saw this tutorial on how to make a halter top out of a t-shirt over on Wobisobi, I was half flabbergasted and half reaching for the scissors and an old t-shirt. I've always been a fan of the t-shirt upcycles-- from t-shirt quilts, t-shirt flower dresses, and woven t-shirt shirts. (Say that five times fast.) ;) The t-shirt halter top is SUPER easy and it takes about 5 minutes!

How to Make a T-shirt Halter Top

Step 1:

With a pair of scissors, cut off the arms of the t-shirt on both sides. Then cut a deep V into the front of your shirt.

Step 2:

Then you need to cut along the back of the shirt along the lines of where the arms first met the shirt. Then cut up to the top of the shirt where the V from the previous step meets the top.

Twist the long straps that you just cut, cross them over in the front, and tie it in the back! A very simple t-shirt upcycle. :)

Would love to try this but am soooo confused. You cut a V into the front of the shirt but don't cut off the collar...and then cut off the sides in just the back? Or both layers? And how do they become straps???

Of course! :)

So sorry I confused you! You cut a v in the front of the shirt, and you DO cut off the collar. You also cut a little box in the back, (The middle section comes off in addition to the sleeves). Hope this helps! :)

so then, on the back, the two rectangles on each side of the 'box' are the straps? Confused.

StacieGrissom said...

You just extend the rectangles from the front (on either side if the v-neck) into the back, twist them, and tie it up! :)
