Do you own a pair of scissors and a shirt you don’t mind cutting up? Good, this is the tutorial for you! Let’s get the thrifty details out of the way first…

Braided Belt | hand me down from dad: free
Black Toe Leopard Flats | Cotton On on clearance: $5
Ok, here we go:
Step 1: Get shirt.
Step 2: Lay it out flat so that the side is facing you, and the front and back centers meet on the sides.
Step 3: Starting with the back center, cut across toward the front center as high up on the shirt as you feel comfortable (personally I’m not one for the super cropped look – my abs need work). Leave about 5 inches front the front. Curve the cut down so you start cutting perpendicularly to your original cut.
Step 4: Starting with the front center, cut out a vertical strip about an inch higher than your first cut.
Step 5 (optional): Cut a curve into the ties for a smooth look.
Step 6: Lay out the shirt so you can see your work. Hopefully the whole thing is symmetric. Make any adjustments in your cuts if necessary.
Step 7 (optional): I cut off the sleeves and neckline.
Step 8: Tie the ties in a double knot!
There you have it! Cut up a shirt and an old pair of jeans and you’re dressed for a Sunday fun day. Britt had the same idea. She removed her sleeves. Then, using a small pair of shears, cut tiny holes on one side of the shirt.
