I got inspired to do this DIY from Instagram. I was looking through Carnival pictures and came across a very creative young lady who transformed her T-shirt into a romper. So I thought maybe I could experiment with the idea but instead of a romper, I made a body suit from a T-shirt!
What I Used
Needle & Thread/Sewing Machine
I started by pinning an existing one piece swimsuit to the T-shirt & outlining it with a marker.
I then cut along the outline leaving about an inch & a half for allowance. I made sure I left the shoulder seams in tack but I removed the sleeves.
At first I attempted to use my sewing machine to reattach the T-shirt, however, that proved futile so I had to sew the entire bodysuit by hand.
Voila! I was done in less than 30 minutes!
Instead of hemming the leg, arm or neck area, I just gave it a gentle stretch (the beauty of redesigning a T-shirt!).
I had so much fun doing this DIY project & I was surprised at how well it came out even though I had to hand sew it.
I hope you try this DIY especially for persons who may have T-Shirt Mas or Jouvert events to attend for the upcoming Carnival season.
Thank you for stopping by
