DIY Choker T-Shirt

Hey y'all!

How cute is this top?! I've had to the idea to DIY this choker-style shirt ever since football season. I saw this type of shirt all over etsy and I knew I could easily do it myself for waaay cheaper.

This only took me about 5 minutes to do, and cost about $6 (thanks to walmart!) All you need is a shirt, a ruler, a pencil and a pair of scissors!




STEP 1 : Start off by making a mark in the middle of your t-shirt. It helps if you put the shirt on so that you can make sure it won't be too low cut and it will also help you find the center!


STEP 2 : Flip the shirt inside out, then use the ruler to line up each side and make sure it's straight. Be mindful of how wide the triangle is, because that's how 'revealing' your shirt will be!


STEP 3 : Use your scissors to cut a small hole in the middle, then cut down each side. Make sure you're only cutting through one half, and be sure to not to cut the neckline so the shirt will have that 'choker' look!  By cutting it while it's inside out, it causes the fabric to roll in the way, so if you're lines aren't perfect, it looks like they are.


It's seriously that easy! I chose to pair mine with a black bralettedistressed denim shorts, but you could honestly dress it up too! I've seen girls on gameday wear these types of tees with faux leather skirtswedges, and it looks adorable.

I can't to wear this next football season, and also to make a few more of these style shirts!
