As some of you may know, I was in Canada for a week and have just returned. While I was in Quebec City, my cousin Jessica and I saw a really cute touristy tee that we decided we’d jazz up once we got back home. I already own and love a cropped tee from Urban Outfitters, so I figured we could try cutting up the shirts so we could actually wear them without feeling like total dweebs. Also, the Urban cropped tee I got was around $30 and I wanted another one for zilch.
Yes. I know that “making a cropped tee” sounds like the easiest thing in the world. I mean, I’ll admit it’s not rocket science (as Miss a La Playa has pointed out quite humorously to the left here).
But we did figure out some tricks to the trade (can you imagine that I actually semi-messed up? :P). This works for any old camp ’93 or funky-print tee that’s been gathering dust for the past 29348725 years because you couldn’t find a time to wear it.
What you’ll need:
- Old tee
- Ruler (optional)
- Tee with boat neck
Estimated time: 10 minutes
Note: I know Fall’s coming up, so you can wear the cropped tees with cute black tank tops under them to keep warm :)
