What are some ways (besides making it off-the-shoulder) to change up your t-shirts?

you can cut and tie off the side or back, to give it a fringe look, or you can sew on lace

i just like giving mine cuter little cap sleeves instead of the regular ones. you can turn the neckline into a boat neck, not quite off shoulder. or do a v neck- any neckline really!

Years ago, when I was irked that boys got all the fun snarky shirts and girls only got “90% Angel” and “2 HOT 4 U” crap, I would slice the sleeves and sides off so it would be more femininely fitted, then lace the sides closed with quirky-colored/-patterned shoelaces.

SpammishRice- adding lace is a good idea! I might try that.

Also I saw a tutorial awhile ago on ChildhoodFlames about shredding your t-shirts/tanks, if they’re made the right way. It seems like a pretty good tutorial, with photos and a video. http://childhoodflames.blogspot.com/2008/10/do-it-yourself-shredded-tee.html

i like to simply cut out a fun shape from pretty fabric (or-from and old pair of jeans, but thats a little bit harder to sew), and sew the shape onto the front, back, or wherever on the t-shirt.

Last night, I found this old striped t-shirt. I cut the sleeves off and cut down the sides then tied the bottom edges together. I’ll post pictures soon if anyone wants to see. :]]

this is giving me so many great ideas, i always come across old shirts i want to wear but they need something different added to them. i definitely think i will try adding lace or flutter sleeves.

you can cut it or sew different things on. Maybe add some pins or buttons, and you can even paint them! :)

With a long and oversized t-shirt you could cut off the top sleeve area, fold the top of the material over a piece of elastic and sew it up, add another strip of elastic under the breast area (so it bunches/ruches a bit round the breast area) and make a boobtube minidress. Or you could cut off sleeves and sew the edges in to neaten it up and have a vest/tank top, or cut holes into a t-shirt to make a distressed style one if you’re into that kind of look.

You can sew on a piece of fabric in any shape, I like to put cross on mine (with animal print :) )
Or you can put beads, sequence, studs, etc :)
Enjoy your T-shirt surgery :)
