What you’ll need

  • oversized t-shirt

  • needles and treads or sewing glue

For this DIY t shirt project, I suggest you select large or an extra large t-shirt. the larger the dress are the more length you can have to work with which is really good. okay then’ let’s start! 1st take your t-shirt and put it inside out and fold it in half. Now remove all the wrinkles out of the t-shirt.

Now make a small mark under the armpit of the t-shirt. Measure 3 inches from the armpit to below you just drew. now mark a small point in between the two marks. now measure 7 inches toward the middle of the shirt and trace out kind of like a “U” shape across the marks you just drew.

After done with that mark the hip and front line. Now cut off all the marks you just made. Open the shirt up and you should have two separate pieces. Now we are gonna start sewing part. But you can use sewing gum as well. sew on the marks we made (3 inches from armpit) earlier. if you need a slim dress cut the sides all the way down and sew it again removing about a half inches. Make sure you do this to both sides.  sew or glue the cut outlines we made.

Now cut 8 inches long 3 inches wide two-strip from the leftover fabric. Tie one strip to the front and other to the back. now you are officially done with your beautiful tie up summer dress you just made from an oversized t-shirt.

6 steps to cut the t-shirt into off shoulder top

Take your old t-shirt and lay it on a flat surface. 1st thing to do is cut off your collar. If you are a beginner you can practice this on another old t-shirt that you really don’t care. But this is super easy ladies! even if you are a beginner I’m quite sure you can succeed in 1st try.

Mark directly underneath the stitching of the collar. but for the other side, you are going to cut a little bit wider than the first one. Because we want this to be an off shoulder t-shirt. You can select either side. Now cut the mark you just drew. After done with cutting stretch the fabric of the collar so that it looks more of a clean look.

After that, we are going to focus on the sleeves of the t-shirt. Cut about one inch from both sleeves and do the same stretch procedure for sleeves.

The third step is optional but you can try if your t-shirt too long or you need an off shoulder crop top. Cu the bottom part whatever length you want it to be but be careful unless you don’t want to ruin your t-shirt. What I suggest is 1st cut small part, check it and wear it if it’s not fit you can cut again. okay, ladies. we are done.  Wear your off shoulder t-shirt with high waist denim jeans or shorts and of course you can try your DIY Bralette with this off the shoulder top. Try this DIY and let me know how you succeed with this.

Easy steps of making off  shoulder dress from a shirt

  • 1st remove the pockets from the shirt. But if you like to keep the pocket, you can keep it.
  • Mark the length of your dress. If you want a too short dress you can cut some fabric off from the shirt. But it’s always better to have extra fabric. So be careful when you are cutting the shirt. we can’t add fabric for your dress if it accidentally becomes too short.
  • Next, cut off the neckline. If you are going to cut the neck measure half of the shoulder measurement. You just have to mark the middle point. What I recommend is take less fabric 1st. for example, take one inch 1st   from the collar side and cut it, check it and wear it. If you feel comfortable with that measurement you can carry on but if you want to wide neck you can increase it.  For complete the neckline,
  • Now using a top or a dress that perfectly fit your body, trace your dress.when you are tracing always leave one or two inches extra for seam allowance. Now cut it off.
  • Sew or glue both sides of the top.  You can cut off the button from the top or you can keep the buttons. If you cut the buttons stitch sides together. Hem both armholes.
  • Now we are officially done with sewing. Cut off extra fabrics and treads for a perfect finish.

As you can see,  we don’t ruin our t-shirt, You can still use your cut off t-shirt as a crop top or whatever you like. Now measure your chest and all around the body. Add two extra inches and cut off your bra. Now you have two pieces.

Now go ahead and pin the elastic on the places you just marked. when you are complete with one side attach the other side.Then put back piece on the elastics. sew both edges.  Make sure elastics are tight enough and comfortable. Turn the bra inside outside and sew both edges. woo woo, trust me! this is gonna work.
