Check how I make a vest from T-shirts for this summer, dress it up or just wear it with jeans. This cute vest is super easy and cute!
I love to spice up dresses and jeans with a long summer vest. On my last visit to Target, I found a few very cool and super cheap items, I already showed you what I did with this dress. So now I wanted to show what I did with two T-shirts, I also used a little piece of lace for the back, but you don't need to use it if you don't like lace.
I really liked that the T-shirts were very soft and thin material, thinner than normal cotton T-shirts.
They cost me $3.00 each and both were XL. I am a Medium in shirts, so I would recommend using shirts two sizes bigger than what you normally wear, so they are long enough and you end up with a pretty and full bottom.

How to make a vest from a t shirt
This is how I transformed the T-shirt to make a flowy vest for summer, I love vest that are almost skirt-like at the bottom, so adding 2 shirts definitely gave that effect.
Cutting the pieces of the first t shirt
Cutting the second t shirt
Assembling the vest pieces
This was a very cool and not so complicated project, I recommend you to measure your back because in my case I ended up liking the back a little bit more tight than the full width of the back shirt, that is why I gather the extra material in the lace.
As you can see on the pictures of the back, so before you finalize the back try it on and make sure you are comfortable with the width.
I love how it looks with a belt on, it's almost like a very thin cardigan =]
