I am the master of destroying things with scissors. You can ask anyone. Growing up, I would "fix" my clothes, cut off my dolls' hair, and chop at my own hair. Nothing is safe around me.
Sometimes I use my skills for good. In this case, I turned a long-sleeve t-shirt into a vest.
What you'll need:
*masking tape (optional)
1. Lay your shirt out on a hard flat surface.
2. Cut the sleeves off of the shirt. It's best to start at the armpit and go up.
3. Make a V with masking tape on the front of the shirt. This will help you cut in a straight line. Cut from the sides of the neck down to the point of the V shape. Cut off any remaining collar.
4. You now have a vest! For a more tailored look, you can stitch where the fabric has been cut. I prefer the no sew look.
