DIY UPCYCLE T-SHIRTS

There’s a thing often hola my name is Alejandra and welcome back to my channel a while back I made a video where I upcycle a t-shirt into a skirt and you guys seem to similarity it a lot.

So today I’m going to show you how to transform a t-shirt into a peplum top it’s really easy to do also if you want to watch this video in Spanish I have a Spanish channel so make sure to check it out in the description box and I hope you guys like it to start you need an extra large t-shirt and the first step is to put it on and you’re going to mark where you want your peplum to start so for example I want mine a little below my way,

So I made the mark there then go ahead and slit along the length but don’t throw away the ground piece because of the fabric you need to make the peplum portion of the top for the next steps choose your favorite fitted tank top and the reason for it is is so you can trace that pattern to the t-shirt and once you finish cut it out leaving one inch for the seam allowance next you need a sewing machine so start by placing the right sides of the t-shirt together,

Then hem the armholes and sew the sides and when you’re done it should look something like this now I’m going to use the extra fabric from step one to create the peplum so fold the material in half and place it on a table with the fold facing you that’s important and it’s time to calculate your radius first take your waist measurement and add two inches for the seam allowance so for example my waist was approximately 28 inches,

Then I added the two extra inches which gave me a total of 30 and then I divided it by six point two and that’s my radio now that you have your size use a ruler to mark your radius from a edge to create a curve then determine how long you desire your peplum to be I decided I wanted mine six inches long so using the same method I mark six inches all around the curve and once you’re done you’re ready to cut it out by now you should have two half circles so spot the right sides together and sew on both sides to create a full circle,

So the last step is to attach the shirt and the peplum with the shirt laying with the right side out slide the peplum part with the right side facing down until the bottom edge of the shirt lines up with a smaller curve of the peplum so you should deadline up with the advantage view of the t-shirt covering the right side of the peplum then you can pin it in place and sew around that is it for this video I hope you try out this fun idea to upcycle your t-shirts and let me know if you desire more so that’s it for this video thank you so much for watching until the end let me know in the comments if you liked it and any other type of videos you would like for me to do next and I’ll see you in my next one.
