How To Make Yoga Shirts

This is a tutorial on how to take regular t-shirts and make them into what I like to call yoga shirts! 🙂

All you need is a t-shirt and scissors!

Cut off the bottom seam, the seams of the sleeves, and about one inch inwards to makes the ‘straps’ smaller, then cut off the top collar seam.

To make the front neckline lower cut off another inch and a half of the neckline.

Next, flip the shirt so you are cutting the back. Make sure to make the back straps small and cut the middle of the back in a “V” shape.

With extra fabric from a sleeve, cut it all into one long strip by pretending the fabric is a swirl. Just keep cutting.

Next, tie the now string fabric in a knot around the straps in the back. Now, make the ‘four’ loop that is used in making friendship bracelets.

Tie off the end and cut any long strips unless you want to make a bow in the back like I did. The shirt should look like this.

If you need to make the underarms looser to have more room for your arms then cut about two inches of fabric off in the underarms.

And this is what the shirt will look like from the front and back.
