First I cut the sleeves off. I just followed the seam. Then I used a straight edge to cut off the top. I cut it right at the neck line.
Next, I sewed the armpit area. I just folded it over twice (so there wouldn't be any fraying going on) and sewed along the line I cut. Then I folded the top over twice but left enough space to insert a ribbon!
Finally I added the ribbon & tied it to make straps. Isn't it the cutest shirt!? It only took me about 45 minutes to make. I think it will go faster next time. I can't wait to make more! Oh, and did I mention this type of shirt is SO in style now. How convenient.
