Reinventing Your T-Shirt Tops
Most people have bulks of T-shirts lying around the house, which have seen their best days and some now just occupy space on a deserted shelf. There are many alternate things you can do other than just throwing them away. It is a just a matter of having the perspective and a new concept to reinvent the old t-shirts in to designer apparel! Here are a few deals that can help you get moving in the right direction. Beyond this, you can always experiment and come up with newer ideas.
1. T-shirt to sleeveless top
This is a unique way of giving the old t-shirt a completely new lease of life. All you need is a pair of scissors and proper hand at cutting in clean lines. Start cutting the t-shirt from the upper edge of the beginning of the sleeves at the shoulder. If you are accurate enough, you can even attempt to slant the scissors a bit to get a more stylish cut just above the shoulder blades area.
2. T-Shirt to halter top
The halter top is fast emerging as the trendiest cut of all types of dresses and tops. To create a halter top from a t-shirt, you will need to cut the t-shirt in to perfect lines to just leave a thin strap of the neck line above the fold. Now sever the neck line in to two and then retie the ends to create a designer halter top. In some cases, the frayed edges of the cut will have to be hemmed in.
3. T-shirt to a designer outfit
Longer tees make excellent choices for a brand new image makeover in to a slip dress. Make sure that the material of the t-shirt is either a knit or silk. This will make sure that the lines of the dress remain intact. You can use cotton t-shirts but the appeal would just not be the same in this case. Start by sewing the t-shirt according to measurements to give a more form fitting frame to the dress. Cut the sleeves and hem in the shoulder straps to create a more finished look.
4. Donate old T-shirts
Donate old T-shirts: Even after such innovative possibilities, there might be t-shirts in your collection that might not be ideal for a proper re-invention or you might just not want to wear those t-shirts again. In such a case, you can still consider not just throwing them away but actually attempting a grand gesture that will make you feel excellent as well as help some unfortunate people. Donate the t-shirts to various charities. In developing nations, especially in India, many such decent organizations that will gladly accept any help and donations that you can make to help with their causes.
5. Resell old T-shirts
Some retail brands also offer to buy back old t-shirts that have not been frayed or completely damaged. The purpose of this deal is quite similar to the objectives mentioned here. They either recycle the material of the t-shirt or re-invent the look of the t-shirt to create something entirely different and cutting edge. This increases the resale value of the old t-shirts.
