I got inspired to create this look because I had so many large t-shirts lying around, and I love the print on them, but I wouldn’t wear a plain large t-shirt, it is just not my style :p I definitly like flashier clothes, and have been really into shirts with cut outs and that have been hand altered. I love fringing, bow back, bowl neck, and more styles you can do with scissors! So I set a side all my cool looking t-shirts that were way too big for me and decided to look up some Youtube videos on DIY t-shirt cutting. There are so many out there, so I would suggest looking through them because there really is a million ways to cut a t-shirt lol :p

I used my Thor shirt….Of course! I love Thor, and this shirt, but the neckline was too high for me, and the bottom was baggy so I never wore it :/ SO, I grabbed it, some white chalk or white eyeliner pencil (both wash out in the washing machine) some scissors, and your body! ;) haha. The best way to figure out how you want your t-shirt to look is by wearing it first! This way you know exactly how it will look when it is all cut up and finished.

For this look in particular, the bows, I used the video below by Salina Siu. Although the girl talks for a bit in the beginning, it is a really easy and good tutorial to follow! This is a no sew video, which is nice if it is a last minute creation before you run out the door for the night. But if you want something more secure, that will last being washed, without being worried about things coming undone, just grab some black thread and a needle. Hand sewing is so easy, even if you have never done it before! Just putting a couple stitches here and there on this shirt will be quick and ensure that the ties are secure, but without sewing it will work just as fine :)

I added my own variations to my shirt after the video! I wanted to dress mine up a bit more, so I used four bows in the back because my shirt is larger. I also, wanted to make it into a smaller strapped tank top so I took some left over cloth from the sleeves and tied it around the top of the straps and pinched it together with the inner neck hole and held it together on each side with strips of the left over fabric like you do on the bows on the back. I also used some extra strips of cloth from the other sleeve and cut a hole in the bottom of the t-shirt on each side of my waist and tied a little bow. This brought in the shirt two inches so it was more form fitting on the bottom and less baggy :) and made it look a bit cuter! :)


I hope you guys enjoyed this post and it was helpful for you! Let me guys know if you like DIY posts and I will do more of them, but with picture by picture directions! :0 Thank you so much for reading and Love always Pearlsnheels <3
