DIY: Workout Tank

Wondering what to do with your old Beer Bike shirts? Stuck with leftover College Night tees? Why not turn them into workout tanks---perfect to wear to the gym while you're working toward that swimsuit body.



Start with an old t-shirt (the bigger the shirt, the baggier the fit of the tank.

1) Cut from under the arm holes to the shoulder. Make sure the actual "straps" are cut straight (although you can customize their placement and width). Now, make a u-shape from one side of the collar to the other. The deepness of the U can depend on how much of the print on the front that you want to preserve. Lastly, cut the bottom seam off; the cut can be wider in the middle of the shirt (especially if you want a cropped fit in front).

2) Turn the shirt over and make the racerback shape skinnier by cutting out more of the sides.

3) Take the extra cut-off from the bottom of the shirt and slice it into one long strand.

4) Using this strand, tie a knot at the top of the racerback, where you want the straps to come together.

5) Wind the strand around the straps and tuck the ends under. And voila!

I hope you found this tutorial useful!

Excuse the messy hair. That's how you know I've actually been to the gym, right?
