Old t-shirts can be given new life when you take a gander at this upcycling tutorial. Using nothing but a raggedy old t-shirt, you'll learn how to make a cut here and put a stitch there in order to magically transform the shirt into a wonderous tank top.
The tank is body contouring and features a small ruched back. Watch this episode of "Whitney Sews" to get the how-to. The tank top is easy to make and really quick to complete, so it's great if you're just starting out sewing!
