T-Shirt to Cardigan Refashion Tutorial

I lucked out and found two of the same shirts on clearance at Target. They were super cheap and extra lightweight.


I took the larger shirt and cut it down the middle.


Then I cut all the way around the neckline.

Then I chopped off the arms right below the elbow.

Then starting at the bottom hem I cut up the middle at a slight angle until I reached the neckline. Then repeated on the other side.

Next I grabbed my second shirt and cut off the top part right below the arm pits.

Then I cut that piece into three sections.

I took one of the side pieces and attached it to one of the middle pieces. The side piece with the seam will go around the neck. I did this with the other side piece and middle piece as well.

Lining up the hem I pinned the pieces to each side of the shirt. Then I sewed each side stopping about two inches from the end. I did not attach the two side pieces at the collar. Since I wanted to make sure the hems matched up, I sewed these pieces together at the very end. Then I finished attaching it around the neck to create a collar.

Your lightweight t-shirt cardigan is complete.


Wrap it around and pin the side for a more fitted look.

This is fabulous! I saw the inspiration piece and think yours is cuter. The tutorial is great, I may even try this. I work in an office that goes from normal temp to frigid on and off throughout the day. I would love a lightweight jacket to throw on.
