INSIDE: How to turn a v-neck t-shirt into a sleeveless ruffled tank top for a cool and cute summer! DIY t-shirt tank top tutorials.
I’m not much of a t-shirt wearer. This must be a genetic thing as I have an 9-year old who has the same “t-shirt issues”. Give us a tank top any day of the week! And yet, I still seem to have a stack of random t-shirts that I seldom wear, most collected as freebies from events.
So just like lemons, when life hands you some t-shirt you aren’t going to wear, you transform it into something you know you will wear. Grab your scissors and start cutting ’cause it’s tank top season!

DIY Ladies Ruffled Tank Top T-Shirt Hack
DIY t-shirt hacks are all the rage and so I’m giving you one more! Darn Pinterest!!
– Sewing scissors
– Straight pins
– Sewing machine
turn a t-shirt into a tank top
Lay the t-shirt flat. Start by cutting the sleeves off. Save these pieces!!
Next, cut off the neck line trim, making the neckline the depth you like. I also cut off the hem at the bottom of the t-shirt, trimming the shirt to a shorter length. SAVE ALL SCRAPS!
How To Add Ruffles to a DIY T-Shirt
Remember how you saved the sleeves and any trim from the bottom of the t-shirt?
Cut open the sleeves so you have two flat pieces. Now cut 1″ wide strips from the sleeves.
Pin in a pleated fashion from the shoulder towards the bottom of the v-neck. Many of these strips were layered on top of one another. Sew down the middle of each strip.
I’m pretty sure this t-shirt never hit the donation bin because I loved the color! And now as a tank top, I’m even more of a fan.
What’s your fave thing to wear come tank top season?
