With this article we are continuing the series of 365 DIY T shirt project. Today is the 98th project, in which we’ll be showing you how to refashion your old T-shirt into a lovely Off-the-Shoulder Ladder V-neck Tee.
It’s an easy DIY Off-the-Shoulder Ladder V-neck Tee with just a little bit of sewing. Nothing hard. Read below for step-by-step instructions.
This DIY doesn’t require a lot of materials. You will need: T-Shirt – Fruit of the Loom, medium men’s, Scissors, Thread and a needle.
First thing to do, cut off the collar. Fold the front part of the shirt in half and cut slits gradually reducing the length of each slit. This it what the shirt looks like when you open it back up. I cut the top of the shirt about an 1/2 inch away from the shoulder seams.
The second step is the laddering. Take the second from the bottom piece and pull it under and on top of the bottom piece. Gradually take each piece and do the same thing all the way up to the top. Then, cut the last piece in half and tie it off on each side. Here is a video of how to do the laddering if it is confusing to you. Take a look at the photo below.
Cut and Tie
After doing the laddering, cutting the ends and tying them, cut an arched shape at the bottom of the tee. Save the bottom hem. Don’t throw it away. Out of the bottom hem cut two 7 inch pieces. You are going to sew this to the top of your shirt for straps.
For the so called “Butterfly” look follow this simple step. Take a piece of your shirt, cut it and make a tee shirt string or use a small ribbon. Wrap it around the middle part of your laddering, tie it and that’s it. You can wrap that around your neck. See the photo bellow.
