Woman's DIY Muscle Shirt

Is it just me, or are woman's muscle shirts trending? While cruising Michael's, I snagged this awesome Wonder Woman t-shirt decal for a great clearance price. I knew I wanted a muscle shirt, but I didn't want to just cut the sleeves off a tee and call it a day. I found this tutorial for creating a tank top from an old t-shirt. This tutorial is perfect, you get the comfiness of a t-shirt and the top is sleeveless and slightly fitted like a tank. Best of all...NO SEWING!

I followed the tutorial for cutting off the sleeves and cutting and tying the sides. I didn't cut the neck at all. I also didn't bother with all that pesky measuring for my cuts. I just put the shirt on and used a pencil to mark where I wanted my cuts to go. I also decided to skip the design and opted for a slightly curved bottom.

This is a great method for refashioning old t-shirts for summer or for workout clothes. I used a shirt that is sized bigger than I normally wear so I had room to play with the fit.

*tip: I used tiny pointy scissors to make the holes and then used a crochet hook to pull string through

  1. OH my god! you have done it so perfectly that i can't believe it. Turning a T shirt into a muscle shirt was so easy i never thought of it. The best part is that you need not to stitch the shirt and it is simple and stylish too.
