DIY: Batman T-Shirt Reconstruction

Hey lovelies! So I went through my closet the other day to get rid of some old clothes and I got the awesome idea to try and reconstruct an old T-shirt. I love the way this shirt fits me and I love Batman but I hate the neck on it! I feel like I'm suffocating in it so I knew this was the perfect shirt to start off with! Here is a cute way to turn a T-shirt into a tank top.

I started with cutting the sleeves off and about 3 inches of the neck off as my starter. I then tried it on and realized that I wanted the neck of the shirt to come down lower and to keep the arm holes just how they are. I then cut another 2 inches off of both sides of the neck and scooped the hole lower. It was just a bunch of cutting and trying it on and cutting some more until it was the length I wanted.

I am in love with this tank top and I can't wait to rip apart some more! I hope you all enjoyed this DIY tutorial. If you try this Id love to see how it turned out! 


  1. I like it... It's a shame that the parts you cut off were where the words were and his head. Still very geek chic. Love it.
