What I Did: Cutting a t-shirt in half and then tying it back together? Easy enough. False. This is another one of Pinterest’s dirty, dirty lies. After chopping up a t-shirt like a drunk toddler, I tied the two pieces together to create the illusion of a chic dress – so much no.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: I probably should have used a tighter, longer t-shirt, but alas I did not. I carpe’d that diem and ruined an old baggy t-shirt. Oh well, there’s always more old t-shirts to slaughter.

    That actually doesn’t look too bad, but yeah, you need to cut more carefully, and actually hem the cuts.

    Well, it really doesn’t help that the dress in the picture wasn’t DIYed. But a bigger knot would solve a lot of problems with yours, I think.
