Over-sized t-shirt

Here are the things you need for this DIY project: an over-sized t-shirt, scissors, a piece of thick lace or ribbon. There is a little bit of sewing, so get a sewing kit.

  1. Find a piece of thick lace detail or ribbon and pin it around the collar of the t-shirt.

  2. Hand stitch or use a sewing machine to go around the top and bottom. (Be careful not to sew both sides of the t-shirt together).

  3. Cut straight lines into the angles of the t-shirt collar so that the remnant parts are easy to fold down. Then stitch the folded t-shirt pieces down behind the collar. The additional layers help to give your faux collar more support.

  4. Cut the sleeves off in a curve and tuck the remnant pieces behind the faux collar.

  5. Try it on! If the t-shirt feels too baggy or the arm holes are too large, just sew two lines down the side of the t-shirt to make it fit better.
