Welcome to our little D.I.Y. lab where we show you how to breathe new life into your wardrobe just by tweaking what you might already have. First up: the white tee. We bought a couple of packs of super cheap classic men’s white T-shirts at a blowout bargain store on Clinton Street on New York’s Lower East Side–both V-neck and crewneck–and went to town customizing them for every mood. Here are some good ones. No sewing required!
P.S. Our model is Leigh Shoemaker, model and stylist and vintage aficionado, a transplanted Canadian who lives in the East Village in NYC. Click through below to see our creations, then try it at home, and post your pictures in the comments.
Trim the hem off and save the fabric for a belt. Then cut the front from neck to hem. Then cut up halfway on one side from hem to waist. Next wrap that “belt” that you’ve just created around your waist and tie in a knot. Et voila.
