T-Shirt to No Sew Workout Tank

So this craft is wayward, but it borders on a fail to me. I found my inspiration and pattern from Blogilates via Pinterest, her DIY Racerback Workout Shirt Tutorial found here.

I started with two shirts. Both were cast offs from my husband's college days.

Then I started cutting. I did a lot of cutting. First I cut off the collar. Then the sleeves.

Then I cut the neckline deeper, and the straps and the bottom, like so.

And finally I finished.

The reason why it's kind of a fail is I feel like it doesn't fit me like it should. I should have started with a larger shirt (this one fits only a little big, when it should be at least a size bigger than you are). So the proportions seem a little off. I didn't even make a second one because both shirts fit the same way. It was my first time doing something like this so the straps aren't exactly right. BUT in the end, I still wear it to work out, so I suppose it isn't a complete fail. Next time I might use this tutorial, which has a little more detail: Trash Planet's Tutorial

It does look long enough which is what I would really like!

I love anything repurposing old t-shirts and anything no-sew. This is a win for me since I have actually been working out and could use a racer back style shirt.

What a cute idea! Working out is way more fun when you look good and feel good!

I think the back is cool with the wrapping.
Great idea to repurpose an old tshirt.
