Oh the shirts you can shirt

Today's adventures in t-shirt demolition: a really ugly tank top from a friend's sister.

Goal: make it not look so ugly... besides, blue and yellow are pretty.

Vision: remove the ugly, but then what? [spoiler: it turns into a halter top]

Step 1: Stare at the fugly tank top. It's already been customized, but not in a flattering way.

Step 2: Run a drawstring through 1/2 of the bottom hem.

Step 3: Fold hideous part of tank top under halter top. Yay, better coverage!

Step 4: Cut excess off of back... try to make awkward arm pit cuts from tank-top work with new design. Semi-successful attempt shown below. Bathroom mirror needs cleaning.

Step 5: Safety pins still in place; will remain there until such time as front panel is either trimmed to match the sort of slope that the back has, or... something.

There's your pit scruff pose of the day, awkward bathroom self portrait and all. At least the pit scruff will grow back and the top will sew itself, right? ....right?
