(a crop-top tank-top)

preferably an old t-shirt or long sleeve shirt

Step 2:

Picture of

make the first cuts

- cut off the neck of the shirt as well as the sleeves to your liking

- you can create an deep neck or larger arm holes

- you can make the straps thinner as well

Step 3:

Picture of

mark off how short you want your shirt to be with a strip of tape on the back side of the shirt

(marker if you don't have tape)

- i would try it on at this point to make sure you are happy with the neck and sleeve cuts as well as the length of what your shirt will be

Step 4:

Picture of

only cut the back half of the shirt

- this will leave you with enough faberic in the front to make ties

at this point the shirt should look somewhat like this

Step 5:

Picture of

-cut the front of the shirt into slanted 'triangle' shapes

(this will make the ties look less choppy)

- then cut a slit about 3 inches high in the bottom center, of the front of the shirt

Step 6: The Final Product
