My friend Sherri has been deconstructing her band T-Shirts for years. I always wished I had her talent. A while ago, I did a search on Pinterest to see how many ways there were to create a new shirt from a simple old tee. There are so many great tutorials out there! This is an excellent way to make a T-shirt into something spectacular and even though the sun is not out too much right now, they still look great layered over long sleeves. This would make a great project to do with your teen or tween this weekend! Here are 10 awesome ways to deconstruct a T-shirt.
10 Awesome Ways to Deconstruct a T-Shirt
Sew What’s Happening has a great tutorial for making a very simple Asymmetrical Tank with Bow. This one looks super simple and requires only minimal sewing.
If you liked that one, you will like this Emma Pillsbury T-Shirt with a bow from iCandy Homemade. It’s a little more complicated than some t-shirt reconstructions, but very cute!
Turn any T-shirt into a Shrug with this amazing tutorial from EVEnl via Cut out & Keep.
Since I am kind of a bigger gal, I love that this Empire Cut Blouse from a T-Shirt by Guaya is something I can make and have it look great!
Bisozozo has a great no-sew T-shirt reconstruction on their site. I love this one! I think it would be great for teens if layered with a cami.
Wobisobi is like the queen of all sites dedicated to T-shirt deconstruction. Check out this simple tutorial for a Skull Cut-Out Tee.
Another great no-sew Tee is this Work-out Shirt from a T by DIY Damsels. This one would literally take you 10 minutes to do!
If you happen to be petite, this Pipe Vault T-Shirt Dress from Tally’s Treasury is perfect. If you aren’t that petite, you could make one for any little girls you know!
Create a whole wardrobe of these T-shirt to Tanks from Crafterhours. They look simple and require very minimal sewing.
Creating Laura has a very nice No-Sew Bow Back Tank on her site. Very minimal skills needed for this one and so cute!
Do you deconstruct T-shirts yourself? I would love to know which patterns you would like to try!
Never did see the grey tank here yet clicked away & gave up…

There are 2 grey shirts. The skull cut-out tee and the No-Sew Bow Back Tank. I checked and the links are working for both of those shirts.
