So excited to show you loves how to turn a boring old t-shirt into one of your favorites!
Hello Loves!! Hope you are all having a great week! Since the 4th of July is right around the corner, I thought I would show you guys how I turned this USA t-shirt into a v-neck choker top! If you haven’t noticed chokers have made their comeback! Haha, and I love it. I have seen these types of shirts sold in tons of stores, but I am going to show you a super easy and fast way you can do this at home with one of your old or new t-shirts.
So what started this idea.. Me and my husband went out and got these USA shirts. We got them because they were super cute and only $4! Well I love that we matched, and it would be cute to wear together, but I wanted to make mine look a little more feminine. So heres what I did..
First when picking a shirt, make sure the neckline isn’t a boat neck, or v-neck top. In order for it to look like mine, the neckline has to be right on the neck.
I already made the USA shirt before I wrote this post, so I picked a plain white tee that I had in my pajama drawer to show you guys.
First I put it on and drew with a pencil where I wanted to cut it. It’s so much better doing it while wearing the shirt, because with it off you can accidentally make the V neck way to long and you might not like that. So when drawing it, make sure to not draw past your collar bone or the choker will look loose and funny at the end. If you’re not sure how far to draw, start off small. That way you can work with it. Here is what mine looked like after I drew on it.
Now you cut out the part that you drew with pencil. After you cut it, I would try it on to see if you like the size. If you want to cut more, then you can, (but keep in mind when you stretch it on the last step it does get a little bigger). Heres what It looked like while I cut it and after cutting it.
So after you have it just how you like it, then you stretch it just on the sides, DO NOT STRETCH THE CHOKER PART! Otherwise depending what kind of fabric your using you could make the choker look loose and funny looking, which I don’t think you would want. I tucked it slightly under (as seen in this next pic) while stretching it so the fabric would stay that way.
Heres what it should look like done!
But thats it! Easy peasy!! To spice it up even more I rolled the sleeves a little and just tucked it in a tiny bit in the middle or I tied it in a little knot at the bottom corner. But it still looks super cute either way. Just depends on what your style is.
Had to throw the family pic in there! lol.. Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Let me know your thoughts or questions in the comments!
