Cut up a Backless T-Shirt Tutorial

Posted on November 5, 2013

Do you have a t-shirt with a graphic on the front that you want to get rid of? You can cut it out and wear the t-shirt backwards as a backless top! Here’s the t-shirt I started off with – it’s a Gildan t-shirt, size medium, and made of 100% cotton.

3. Use the sleeve you just cut off and cut out a skinny or wide strip – up to your preference. If you’re feeling creative, you can use a contrasting colour string or a different material (satin sash?)backless-sfu-beedie-salina-siu-salinabear-cut-up-t-shirt-28
