on March 31, 2016

All you need for this stylish workout tank is a pair of scissors and our Athletic Tee. In just a few simple steps you'll have a favorite go-to tank top for your next workout!

CUT T-SHIRT TUTORIAL:

Step 1: Cut the collar and sleeves off your t-shirt. Be sure to cut the seams completely off but follow them closely as you cut.

Step 2: Decide what length you'd like for your tank top and cut along the bottom of your tee, making sure to cut enough off for a 1” strip to use later as your tie. (Note: we cropped our shirt approximately 2" from the bottom hem).

Step 3: Cut a triangle down the back of your t-shirt, cutting from the collars edge toward the middle of the tee. (Note: we measured approximately 6” down from the collar and made a pen mark in the middle of the shirt where our 2 cuts should meet).

Step 4: Using your bottom scrap piece cut a 1” strip along the length of the scrap.

Step 5: Take your 1" strip and tie your shirt straps together, wrapping the strip around the straps and moving down as you go. (Note: we tied our straps approximately 3” from the top of the shirt). Once you have your desired length, tie a knot, tuck in the loose ends and there you have it!

Happy workout!

How To Cut A T-Shirt Into A Crop Top DIY Tutorial

This tutorial is easy, we promise! All you need for this super cute tank top is a pair of scissors and our Tomboy Vintage Bubble Gum Tee. In just a few simple steps you'll have an adorable crop top for Summer!

CUT T-SHIRT TUTORIAL:

First, cut the collar and sleeves off your t-shirt. Be sure to cut the seams completely off, but follow them closely as you cut.

Next, decide what length you'd like for your crop top and cut straight across the back of the t-shirt, making sure not to cut the front of your tee. (Note: we cropped our shirt approximately 6" from the bottom hem).

Lastly, cut the bottom hem off the front of your shirt and make a straight cut up the middle (approximately 6"-7"). Then, from the bottom of that middle cut, make diagonal cuts up to meet the cropped back portion of the t-shirt on either side.

 

Now just tie a knot in front and there you have it!
