My hubby just gave me a huge pile of really cool men’s T-shirts that he no longer wears after cleaning out our closet. I have lost a lot of weight over this last year and am not so quick to want to hide in large T-shirts anymore like I used to, but I am totally a T-shirt lover and couldn’t bare to throw the shirts out. I decided that I’d try to find a way to make them more feminine and even sexy, and after a quick search for inspiration around the web I found just the right combination that works for me!

All I’ve done is simply cut a deeper neckline on the shirts to give them a boatneck and then I added elastic into the bottom hem of the T-shirts. This makes the shirts hug my hips and show more skin on the top yet retain the comfortable loungy T-shirt feel. I am so happy with the outcome! I love layering these shirts over tall tank tops with complementary colors!

To decide the length of the elastic I simply pulled the elastic around my hips and clipped it at the length that I felt would be snug but not too tight. This upcycle method is really easy to eyeball and just wing it without extensive complicated measurements. I share some pictures of the process so you can raid your loved one’s closet and create some sexy from the plain!
