T-shirt reconstruction tutorials show innovative DIY fashion. If you have an oversized T-shirt, there are many options to turn it a stylish option. While some required light sewing, there are also many no-sew T-shirt modifications. Modifying your favourite band T-shirt can give you a whole new look.

No Sew T-shirt Modifications

No-sew T-shirt makeovers involve a pair of scissors, tailor's chalk and a T-shirt. The easiest no-sew style is a halter top. This option is perfect for modifying oversized T-shirts. For T-shirts that fit closer to your size, a great no-sew modification is simply making an off the shoulder top. You can also modify the back by cutting slits or a design.

T-Shirt Modifications that Require Sewing

Create a drawstring tube top either by hand or with a machine. Another great T-shirt makeover is an asymmetrical shirt. This makeover requires a bit more sewing than the drawstring tube top, but the end results are worth it. Sewing is great for T-shirt modifications because it allows you to create fitted tops accurately.
