DIY Workout T-Shirt

Earlier this month we shared some simple no-sew t-shirt modification ideas from some of our favorite blogs. Having just found a Sounders FC shirt at Goodwill that I liked—but didn’t quite fit as well as I liked—I decided to try my hand at the DIY Workout Shirt from Rabbit Food for my Bunny Teeth.

This project was certainly as easy as she made it look!

I trimmed the sleeves and collar off—leave the shoulders a bit thicker than the original tutorial showed, and leave the underarm a little higher so it doesn’t scoop as low beneath the arm. Since I like extra length on my shirt, I didn’t trim the bottom hem off, and used the extra fabric from the sleeves to tie the back.

This project took me about ten minutes from the time I took the scissors and shirt out to the time I put the modified shirt on. Check out my version in the images below—scarves up, Seattle!

I’m looking forward to wearing this out on hikes, camping—and maybe to a Sounders game on a hot summer day!
