How TUE-sday - DIY Cut & Tie Tank

Happy Tuesday!
You know what that means! Todays how-to will be on making a cute and stylish tie tank. I've had this Roxy t-shirt for a while now and I've only worn it a few times. I really like it but it's just kind of boring, so I decided to make it into a tie tank for a cute spring and summer top. This post will show you step by step how I made it! 
Hope you enjoy!

Shirt before:

Begin by cutting the sleeves off

Next cut the neckline

If you're just going for a tank top style stop at this point

How it looks just as a tank

Next cut the back of your top right about to your hips - 
Then cut down the middle of the front to the cut of the back

Finally cut the front into a triangle shape - All done!

That was easy right!?

The final product so cute - I added a cute floral headband for that summery look

Top || Roxy
Jeggings & Shorts || AEO
Headband || Pac Sun

Now you have a super awesome tie tank! I can't wait to do this to more of my old shirts. DIY tanks can be done in so many different ways. I'm sure in the future I will post more types. Today I was really missing summer so I thought this was appropriate!

Please tell me what you think! Thanks!

    1. Thanks girl! It's so easy and cute! I was so surprised it actually looked pretty good instead of looking poorly cut!
