Almost every girl has a few too-big T-shirts in her closet, but instead of just wearing them to bed at night how about refashioning one into a cute tunic dress? I love this fashion DIY because it’s really easy to do and the resulting A-line dress is so easy to just throw on – especially for summer. The other great thing about this DIY is that if you have a tee with a graphic on it, you can even make your dress reversible so that you can wear it with the image in front for days you feel cheeky or wear the plain side in front on days when you’re feeling more serious.

Babydoll shirts with all sorts of weird bunching and shirring used to be in style until we realized that they made everyone look equally preggers. So now there are a ton of these unflattering tops floating around unloved even though many of them still have nice, bold prints like the Marc Jacobs-esque large flower pattern on this one. If you’re the owner of one of these shirts and are not quite sure what to do with it, here’s a really easy, no-sew fashion DIY showing you how to turn an ugly babydoll shirt into a summer skirt just in time for the warm weather. I think you’ll really be surprised at how simple this tutorial is, and depending on the shirt you use, you can make the bottom into a skirt and the top into a cute bandeau.
Step 1. Steal your boyfriend’s shirt. I’m just kidding. Don’t steal. But if you notice that your boyfriend (or husband, brother, friend, dad, guy on the couch) has an old t shirt that they hardly wear anymore, they should be fine with you taking it as long as you ask nicely. And this project will work just as well with any oversized t shirt you already have in your own closet too. There are only a few steps and when you’re done, you’ll have a cute tank top just in time for summer. Read on for the full instructions!
Turn an old t shirt that your boyfriend/husband/brother/friend/dad/guy on the couch never wears any more into an adorbs new tank for yourself – lord knows you deserve it for putting up with ’em. Especially the guy on the couch.
