DIY Sleeveless Button Down Shirt

Featured

One of my favorite trends this summer is the sleeveless button down shirt, especially when tied in a cute little knot. I almost bought one today, but when I saw that it was going to cost me around $50, my self-control kicked in (rare when shopping...) and I put it back on the rack. I asked myself a question any "normal" fashion obsessed broke twenty-something year old would ask themselves:
Why spend $50+ when I can make my own???

Lay the shirt flat and start cutting along the seams.
(When cutting the left sleeve, cut to the left of the seam, etc.)
Do not cut the front and back at the same time or it won't be even.

Step 3: Remove old buttons (optional)

If you want to jazz up your shirt even more, try switching up the buttons!
First, snip off the old buttons. Make sure you snip just the thread and not the shirt!

Step 4: Add new buttons (optional)
