Modifying Your Favorite T-Shirt


Bronze Post Medal for All Time! 228 Posts

Turn plain Jane t-shirts into something casually interesting, fun and cool!

Start by carefully cutting away the neck. Then with scissors at the arm begin cutting strips about 1/4 inch wide inward (upward) the length of your scissors. Cut all the way around the arm as evenly as you can. Do the other arm. Then cut the bottom of the shirt until it is all fringed. What a way to modify your favorite t-shirt!

This has been a big thing, especially during the 60's and 70's, making all sorts of designs, middle patterns, and shredding everywhere. It's a lot of work but my question is: Does it last after the first wash or two? : )

that is great...I have modified many of my tee's. There is a book, Generation T and it has lots of different ideas to modify shirts to other things, including skirts, purses, etc.

You could even tie little knots in the fringe for a different look :)

Lynda, they last in the laundry - yes. But they often come out with tangled fringe! The narrowest I ever cut my fringe was about 1/4" But to get around this: hand wash.
