Recycled-Vintage Cropped Tank

I'm currently obsessing over several fashion trends, one being the cropped t-shirts. I've had this Beatles t-shirt I got on sale a couple years ago that I like a lot but always felt it was a bit boring. So along with many projects I have found for myself this was one of them. I transformed my boring t-shirt into a vintage cropped/tank top. This is what it looked like when I purchased it.
And this is now. 

Just to give you the look I was going for. I styled it with some rosaries, plastic, wood, and silver combined. And lots of different bangles. I cut the collar off, did a low neck line. Cut an exaggerated amount out as the arm holes, lower than where my bra straps sit. And cut the bottom at an angle, the front is a lot shorter than the back. So it has a bit of a train. 

 Now all i need is a helmet and a Harley and I'm a certified bad ass. Haha 

I'd love to know what you think.. Please leave me a comment below!

  1. Joel said its really cool he likes it a lot, I want one, make me one! "make me a bicycle funny man"

  2. wow thats impressive! you totally transformed a regular tee and turned into something stylish and modern. I have to ask though... When you cut the fabric do you trace before cutting or was it freehand? I love it!

  3. @Maria Thanks! Tell Joel I will make him one too if he wants! Haha We should go thrift store shopping together and look for old t-Shirts to transform :)

    @Yanira I flipped the t-shirt inside out and lightly traced it with a light crayon. It helped, even though it's not meant to be completely even. Tracing will guide you in the right direction. Thank you!

  4. one of the coolest top:) i love Beatles, i bought some bella t-shirts and want to crop like that!
