Inspired by this cute ruched jersey coverup from Victoria’s Secret, I grabbed one of my husband’s old white v-neck t-shirts, a pair of scissors, and started cutting. It’s simple and cute and a great upcycle DIY… who knew an old oversized men’s t-shirt could be so sexy?

*notes: if you want to make it look like the VS one pictured above, you can fold over the edges under the arms and stitch a simple tube all the way around. Stitching a ribbon or rope at the top of each side & pushing it through. Cut a hole at the bottom of the tube to push ribbon/rope out of, cinch and tie in a bow. Simple enough.
* If you want it to cover more in the front and sides, make your initial mark further up the neck line and make your side cut shorter as well.

This DIY took between 5-10 minutes …ridiculously easy!

And… Voila!

    Fabulous!!! I’m definitely going to try this. Looks super easy.

    I actually kinda like your DIY version better than the VS one. I don’t like stuff with ties. I know, weird…

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!

    1st of all: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, sweet woman!!!

    That DIY looks like a good one. My bf only wears white t-shirts at home and I bet I can steal one… Most are covered in mascara stains and foundation smudges anyway from my careless hugs. He should be happy to part with those, right?

    人家都說男人到大陸都會外遇包二奶
    老婆淚眼說擔心他外遇
    他了解老婆的擔心,只好用錢去彌補分離的缺憾
    漸漸的,老婆的電話愈來愈少…
    她說,她是怕自己太依賴
    漸漸的,他知道其實是她有了外遇
    於是,面對自己外遇的行為,他忽然覺得好過了些…
