DIY T-Shirt/ Work Outfit of the month



 This was the back of the shirt which after I cut I used as the front.



EVER HAD A SHIRT YOU REALLY DIDN'T LIKE OR WEAR? Here's my solution. :)


 1. Take the shirt you
want to use. Lay it on a table evenly.
2. Cut the bottom portion off right by the hemmed edges.Or to your desired length.
3.Put the shirt on and using the front, stand in front of a mirror, cut the front section to your desired off the shoulder length.
4.Lay the shirt back down and cut out the back portion,matching the front.
 I decided to use a shirt that was slightly loose so that it would have a very lazy feel to it.
5.Smooth out (Cut )any jagged edges  making the cut seem even.
 If those directions seem to be  too much you could put on the shirt and with a pen draw the  section on the shirt you would like to cut off.
 2.Lay it flat and cut it out.
3.If you do use this method,I recommend cutting smaller sections first and trying it on.
I did not hem the altered area's.




 






The dress is from Gabriel brothers. I am not a huge fan of the high-low and I was not a huge fan of this dress, but I think I made it work. I love the black belt as it gives my waist more definition. To make the outfit look a little more casual I opted for some wedged boots instead of some heels.
