DIY: customize your t-shirt

Hey dear ones,

Who does not know that? Once again I saw a great shirt while shopping (online) - great! It's a men's shirt again. Depressing. Mainly because z. B. the most beautiful band shirts are made only for men! The girlies are usually not very exciting or much too short, tight, etc. cut. Why not just turn the men's shirt into a great top?

In this little article I'll show you how to use the basic cuts and have a great top within 10 minutes! At the beginning you should perhaps start with a cheap basic shirt. If something goes wrong here, it's not as bad as the favorite part!


Step by step instructions

  1. You spread the shirt on a table or on the floor. You need scissors that cut well. With this you start under the seam of the sleeve and cut off the entire sleeve along this seam up to the top. Don't worry - nothing will fray! There will be a tip later.IMG_6690
  2. Then fold the t-shirt as you can see in the picture and repeat point 1 with the other sleeve - by folding you get an even cut.IMG_6688IMG_6689
  3. Now the tip against fraying: I then always pull the interfaces a little apart so that the ends curl up a little. So nothing tears.
  4. Now to the collar - here the question arises: high-necked or a little neckline? In principle you can leave the collar on - it looks good too! Alternatively, depending on the print, you can add a little more cutout to the T-shirt. You look for a central point on the shirt to which you cut down. It is best to look and mark when the clothes are on - then cut. I usually start cutting down at the shoulder seam in a triangular shape - then it goes all the way around. On the 3rd photo you can see what I always cut off. And you can always mend it! IMG_6691IMG_6692IMG_6693



Here are a few more outfit ideas. I also like to combine it with a blazer and a statement necklace for work. So you can't just wear the shirts at festivals ...

Short tops with lace or bandeau tops look great underneath - so the slightly wider arm cutouts are not so noticeable.

Dare to show me your creations ... I'm very excited!

Next time I would like to try a shirt with a fringe - but I still have to practice a little.

I'm Pia, 26 years old and live in beautiful Central Hesse. Professionally, I am a hotel buyer for a package tour operator, responsible for Ireland. Why am I on the lipedema fashion blog? That's a good question because I am not affected by lipedema myself. The question quickly arises: yes, and why are you participating? You have no idea about the subject! Well, it's very simple - I'm a fashion enthusiast and especially when it comes to beauty. I don't really have any hobbies, at least not such as painting or playing a musical instrument (to be honest, I'm worlds away from them). So I basically look after the cosmetics sector - my hobby! With just a few means to a radiant appearance - and the positive charisma does the rest! Who else looks at compressions, girls?
