With a new season comes a need for a whole new wardrobe. However, if you’re looking to save some money, DIY is definitely the way to go. Can’t sew? Not a problem! This shirt takes 10 minutes, and only has two straight seams!
You’ll need a yard and a half of a no-fray knit material. I went with one of Mood’s awesome new neoprene fabrics. Who doesn’t love milk and cookies?
The first step is folding your fabric in half twice, like above. The folded corner will become the neckline. You’ll want to cut a small quadrant out from the corner. 2″ – 2.5″ will create a typical t-shirt neckline. You can also elongate the cutout for a more oval opening.
To give the shirt shape, measure about 18″ down from the neck and mark it with a pin, like the image below. Along the other edge, measure about 15″ from the neck. Cut straight down for about 12″ and then curve toward the 18″ pin. Follow the picture below to place your side seams. Each seam should be about 8″ long, starting just below the straight part of the sleeve and angling toward the center of the neckline.
Throw it on over a camisole and some yoga pants and you have the comfiest outfit on the planet!
