I am all about finding new ways to cut up a tee to make it more versatile, live one last breath, or be repurposed. Or, in this case to show the back some summahtime lovin’.
I am also about doing it in an easy, only tools you need are scissors fashion. And yeah, I was all about this fun I had with some scissors.
The results were…surprisingly awesome.
So, here’s what you do, should you have a tee that needs a facelift. Or backlift.
The original diagram shows it best, but here’s my attempt to explain.
1: Cut off the sleeves. Be sure not to cut the armholes too deep.
2: Cut off the neck.
3: Now, cut the front neckline so it’s a scoop neck. I free handed it but feel free to draw where you want to cut first with some scissors.
3: Now, cut the low back. I did a straight cut down the middle as low as I wanted the back to go, Then did a curved cut back up on each side. This made the cut out back symmetrical. High five.
5: Now, here’s my little tip. Lightly stretch and pull all the places you cut so it makes the fabric roll a little bit. This jsut gives it a better/somewhat finished off look, and makes your new backless tank a little more drapey. Which is a good thing.
Now, give yourself a pat yourself on the back.
Your bare back.
