All you need to do is find a tee that could use some revamping, and then you will be all set to transform it into a tie-front tank.

Note: Make sure that you put the shirt on to mark where you want to cut it at each step, so you don’t end up with a super low neckline or a really short cropped shirt, or any fit you don’t want.

Step 5: Tie the two points you have created together twice, creating a cute tie in the front.

Once you have finished the alterations, be bold and pair your DIY with a cool patterned skirt or killer shorts. Rock this newly made look by adding pieces that highlight your own personal style. With every DIY, it is important to come up with your own combinations to make the look your own because originality makes a statement.
