You won’t believe how quick and easy this is – took me just a few minutes! Fold the shirt in half and cut up the middle (of the front layer only!) like so:
Then cut off the binding around the neck – I guess you could leave it if you want to, but the shirt came up pretty high so I took mine off:
Then I angled a little “v” to make it look a little more blended – it’s kind of hard to see:
Now, up until this point I had planned on hemming the cut edges. But they rolled in just a little and I thought they looked great as-is – - so that was it, a no-sew project. Just cut and be done! I told Trevor “look what I made today” as I wore it and he was very impressed until he said “wait, did you just cut the front of one of your shirts” – can’t sneak anything past him.
Anyways, I really really like it! I couldn’t decide if it looked better with a necklace or a scarf, and thought I loved both – they’re both just different looks – so I included both to give you an idea of how to wear it.
And I even took a picture like the inspiration one. I tried the “look meaningfully at the ground” pose – enjoy:
So seriously, you can SO do this! just grab a shirt and some scissors. If you don’t have a shirt you want to cut up, start hunting the thrift stores…..
