Men’s Shirt as a Halter Top for Ladies

Fashion Mode Styling Outfit DIY

This men’s shirt I bought at mister + lady for only EUR 9,90 and pimped to a halter-top. Fits great with jeans and since it is relatively long, the pimped T-shirt can be perfectly combined with leggings.

Materials and tools – for this DIY project you need:

scissors
pins
safety pin
Satin ribbon (about 1m)
Sewing kit, or sewing machine

For the halterneck straps from fabric scraps cut out and sew together two long ribbons. After that, the bands contract in length, so that the substance “completes” and make a knot at each end. Thus, the carrier stay in shape.
