Turn Your T-Shirt into a Spaghetti Strap Tank Top

Got a lot of t-shirts piled up in your house? Why not turn them into cute spaghetti strap tank tops for the summer? Or, if you’re hanging out at the thrift store and pick up some cute t-shirts, think about remaking them into a nice tank top. I found this one at the thrift store for $2. I decided to remake it into a spaghetti strap tank top. Wasn’t that difficult and it turned out so cute!

Items Needed:

  • t-shirt
  • matching thread
  • sewing machine
  • needle and thread (optional)

Directions:

Cut sleeves off t-shirt.  Just cut along side the seam all the way up.

Make straps for t-shirt.  Just cut a piece from the sleeves that were removed.  This t-shirt only takes a small amount of strap.  I sewed one piece and was able to cut in half and use for both sides. Of course, it will depend on how much is needed after measuring.  So, you may be able to get away with only making one long strap and cutting in half.

An easy way to make the strap is to fold and press, with iron, each side of material and then bring together.  See picture above. Sew strap by topstitching.  Make sure that is securely sewn together.

Before attaching front and back pieces together with straps, try on t-shirt to see how much strap length is needed.  Then, attach front and back piece together with strap.  Sew down.  Repeat on other side.
