10 ways to Restyle a T-Shirt

Monday, December 10, 2012

Last month, I received an email from a journalist writing for Ethical Fashion Forum's source magazine, asking if I could be interviewed for an article based on upcycled fashion. I suggested an article focused on ways to upcycle a simple t-shirt.  The article on Source Magazine can be found here, however, I've expanded a little further here, with a blog post dedicated to 10 ways to restyle a t-shirt'.  Some of these are my own ideas, others are shared from the WWW.

1. Into a dress by adding strips of fabric to the bottom, and in this case, a zipper neckline

2.  Into a halter-neck top and headbands by removing the neckline and sleeves.

3. Into a ruffle bag or grocery bag- also helping reduce plastic bags.

I nearly passed out at the sight of the ruffled eco bag! Then there's the Twiggy dress - GAH!!! The DIY I can actually see myself doing is the shoulder-tie one as regular crew-neck t-shirts are a killer in this weather! Thanks so much for sharing these links Erica xoxoxo

I'm loving that grocery bag from Delia Creates! Very tempted to give it a go.
