From backless shirts to peek-a-boo dresses, these small slits are taking the fashion world by storm. Many of these trends are very expensive in-store, yet there’s an easy way to accomplish this look within minutes. Creating this will also help recycle those old t-shirts crammed in the bottom of your drawers. This look can be done by anyone and can be worn anywhere. Let’s begin!
First, you will need an old t-shirt. The front pattern doesn’t matter, but you will only be cutting the back of the shirt. If you don’t have any, they are available at local craft stores. Depending on your cutting and shape skills you may need to trace something. Using any type of paper, draw a large heart and cut it out. This stencil should take up however much of the shirt you want to be showing. Now, cut off the sleeves to form a tank top. Start from the armpit and cut upward. Cut the collar hem off into a scoop neck. The bottom is optional, but to create a more classic tank-top cut an upward scoop neck.
Place the heart on the back of the shirt. Trace with a white pencil, clothing pen, or a light crayon. These are easy to wash off in case of a mistake. Cut out the heart shape, and you’re done! You can cut more if you want a bigger heart shape. For a casual look, I like to accompany this with printed shorts, sandals, and chunky accessories. For a work ready look, I tag along colored pants, a cute cardigan, heels, and a long necklace. I wear most of these tanks in a casual settings. This creation looks fantastic with a printed bandeau or adorable bathing suit. Just in time for summer!
