Learn how to make a cute No-Sew t-shirt refresh with Kim Chapman for Maker Monday
You know how you get cute T-shirts or graphic tees with a unit or squadron name on it or maybe you just love the design of a shirt that you bought but it's a unisex tee and it's not super flattering for your body type.
I want to show you guys a quick 'No-Sew' way to make a cute workout or athleisure tank that you can wear to work out in, go on walks or just do stuff around the house. This is also a good way to finally wear those shirts that have been hanging in your closet getting passed up because it doesn't quite fit right.
In just a few short steps you can have yourself a new favorite tank top!
Step 1: Use a tank top that fits you well to use as your template shirt.
Step 2: Grab a shirt that you want to transform. Maybe it's a t-shirt that you don't find very flattering but you love the graphic on it or maybe it's a shirt that you have had sitting around that you want to wear more often. Lay it as flat as you can and then fold it hotdog style in half.
Step 3: Make sure all the seams are lined up and are as symmetrical as you can get them.
Step 4: Lay your template tank top on top, and fold it hotdog style in half. Make sure all the seams are lined up as much as possible.
Step 5: Using a Sharpie pen or a piece of chalk, trace the outline of the template tank top onto the old shirt. This will be the line that you cut. At the bottom leave about 2 inches and mark a straight line across. You can always cut it shorter if you need to. This part always tends to roll up a bit if it's a knit tee.
And that's it! You have made yourself a tank top from an old t-shirt!
Now you have a cute workout tank that you can wear on your walks and that you can even work out in if you want to. It will be perfect for running or riding bike and perfect with a contrasting colored sports bra too!
If you want to you can take a needle and thread and put a couple of little stitches on the arm seams to keep them from fraying but they really shouldn't fray too much.
I hope you liked this Maker Monday No-Sew t-shirt remake! This is a super cute and super helpful way to transform that old unworn t-shirt into something you can wear and enjoy all over again and give it new life!
