Old Mens T-shirt Sewn Into Women's Dolman Tee

Old Mens T-shirt Sewn Into Women's Dolman Tee
My husband and I are runners so we have a million t-shirts. I love transforming these boxy, oversized tees into something I will actually want to wear other then for a nightgown.

Alone, they sadly serve little purpose (aside from the occasional show biz appearance for only the most sparkling among them), and are left to languish in the backs of a drawers and bottoms of closets — that is, if they’re not disposed of all together.

So, inspired by books such as Generation T and Youtube tutorial experts like itsblitzzz and secretlifeofabionerd, I decided to try my hand at some t-shirt reconstruction. Re-purposing: Tshirts into 5-strand-braided-headbands I was walking through Target a few weeks ago and noticed this little knit fabric headband that was not just braided together…….but woven.

Sew, Cook, Laugh and Live: Lots of lace. My new no pattern required top! A tutorial Ok, so I finally have the pics to prove that I have been doing some sewing! Here is my new “no pattern required” top. It really is so quick & easy to make a top like this. I didn’t even need to use the overlocker!
