No Sew Shirt Revamp

13 Jul

I’ve been working out really hard for the past few months and am showing some serious results.  It’s very exciting, but at the same time I don’t want to go buy a whole new wardrobe just yet . . .I’m not done losing weight!  So what do you do when you are in between and aren’t ready to buy your skinny clothes?  You make your fat clothes skinny!

Soooooo simple, and I was worried at first because one wrong move and I would be down a few tank tops.  But, it’s actually pretty difficult to mess up!

What you need:

  • tank top or t-shirt that is 2 sizes or more too large
  • scissors

Turn your shirt inside out and cut along the seams from bottom to armpit on both sides.  Stay right next to the seam to use it as a guideline.

Cut slits horizontally on the front and back of where your

seam has been cut. Make them about 1-1 1/2 inches long.

Once all your tabs have been made, start tying them together in a simple double knot.  Pull tight enough that they won’t come undone when you wear the shirt, but not pulling so hard that you create gaps in the shirt. Do this all the way down both sides of the shirt.

When the knots are all tied, turn your shirt right side out, put it on marvel in the fact that you’ve just turned a too large shirt into a cute fitted shirt with



You can wash it just like you always would, and if any of the knots come loose, simply retie them!







There is a small amount of gaping shown here, but only because of how I was twisting to show you my finished shirt.
