DIY Racerback Workout Shirt – No Sew!


Saw this idea on Pinterest the other day, and for those of your who don’t have a sewing machine, this involved no sewing of any kind! I’m still shocked this took me about 8 minutes, because I’m that person to whom the term “easy project” does not apply, because no matter what it is somehow it takes me hours longer than everyone else.

Which has instructions, but also provided a link to even BETTER instructions for someone like me, courtesy of Rabbit food for my Bunny Teeth:

All picture instructions (but not the Ikea kind)? YES PLEASE!

Look, a seriously pitted out shirt I used for hiking and kayaking. I almost threw it away 3 weeks ago when I was purging things that have become too big, but I like the design and couldn’t part with it, so it was relegated to the painting/crafting section of my closet.

Cut it up.

Cut the back a bit lower than the front, in more of a V shape.

Use the strip you cut off the bottom to wrap/knot/otherwise tie your straps together. I also cut the neckline a bit bigger from the side like this, to make sure it was even.

That’s it! Seriously. Now go get ripped.

I’m definitely going to make a few more of this and make the large number of useless/mostly unworn tshirts I have, useful again! Tshirts can have a life after college after all! I love recycling.

    • It doesn’t unravel because most shirts are made of some kind of cotton with a little bit of stretch (jersey). As a result, it usually just curls a little, but doesn’t unravel. Pretty cool 🙂
