I have this t-shirt that I never wear anymore because it’s a little loose on me now. I don’t want to get rid of it since it has a sentimental value to me. It’s my first race shirt from my first 5k race. This shirt will always be a reminder of where and why I started running.
So, instead of just letting it sit in my closet, I turned it into a whole new workout top.
DIY Workout Shirt
- any old loose-fitting T-shirt,
- a pair of scissors or cutter
1.a.) Cut the ribbed neckline.
b.) Cut the sleeves downwards starting from the shoulder curving down below the armpit seam. You decide how thick you want your straps to be.
2. Turn the shirt to the back and make a narrower racerback. Then cut a deep V shape from the neckline.
3.) To give your tank a high-low look, lay your shirt sideways and flat. Starting a few inches from the front center of your shirt, start cutting diagonally until you reach the back. Fix the front and back center by cutting it a bit straight or else you’ll end up with a weird pointy shape.
4.). Cut the bottom hem from the scrap of cloth from #3. Knot the string a couple of inches above the V. Wrap the string all the way down around the center of the racerback. Knot the ends together tightly. Trim the loose ends.
Clean up the edges of the shirt and DONE! .Throw it on with some cute yoga pants, grab your towel & water, and hit the gym!
