Upscale Tired T to Cute-T

myupscale t-shirtUpcycling a t-shirt just doesn’t get much easier than this. And if you’re anything like me, you have a seemingly endless supply of subjects for this project. Do these things breed like bunnies in that dark, overstuffed drawer?

The post at It’s Been One of Those Days gives good step-by-step instructions with great results, but her great photos are almost direction enough. I chose an uncomfortable class reunion t-shirt that I haven’t worn for almost five years (I can’t believe they printed the wrong decade on that thing!!) and turned it into a really cute tank that I actually might wear during the lazy days of summer — it would look really cute over my swimsuit.

If you have a sewing machine, sharp scissors and about 30 minutes, you can upscale your own shirt (or shirts) for the sunny days on the way. Come on gals, show me what you got.
