Step 1: Cut Shirt


Cut a vertical line up the middle of the back of the shirt.


Step 2: Add Stitch Witchery


Add strips of stitch witchery to the cut edges and fold them over, then iron to bond the folds. These double-layered edges will add reinforcement for the lace-up loops.


Step 3: Add Loops


Cut 1/2-inch loops from the elastic and attach them along the double-layered edges with a needle and thread.

Step 4: Lace It Up


Zig-zag lace the elastic cord so the ends are at the bottom, then tie them in a bow.

All done


Look at that transformation! Thank you for checking out this tutorial and I hope you give it a try. :)
