My Zipper Tee DIY tutorial...Tshirt Recycle

My Zipper Tee DIY tutorial...Tshirt Recycle
Supplies: Zipper 22 inches or so... old tshirt or 1 yard fabric. I am all about casual style, but usually like something to separate my tee from everyone elses. This started in middle school when I took my first sewing class and from their I was refashioning the family's "giveaway pile." Here is one I designed back then that I recreated for a tutorial. I wanted to share it because it's quite easy, yet still looks amazing! For this zipper: I know they have double zippers, but they go the other way so you will have to make it like i did. You can use an old tshirt, it doesn't matter what size. If you use fabric: I used a light jersey cotton with a nice drape. If the fabric is light, I would suggest ironing interfacing to the edges so it wont wave from the zipper. Sew the side seams if you used your own fabric.
