How to Make a Back-Tie Tank Top


A racerback tank top is a sleek sleeveless option and can be easily made from an old T-shirt. Create this style of tank top with a simple knot detailing on the back, which is a low-maintenance way to dress up an old classic. The racerback tank top is a simple style that packs plenty of personality.

Things You'll Need

  • T-shirt
  • Scissors
  • Chalk or pastel

Cut the neckline of a T-shirt into a U shape with scissors. The shirt may stretch out, so cut the neckline slightly shallower than you want it to sit.

Mark a line with chalk from the shoulder to under the armpit on both sleeves of the shirt. Cut the outer side of the sleeve off, leaving a strip of fabric for the shoulder strap. Keep the scraps.

Pinch the back of the tank top together where the fabric hits between the shoulder blades, then tie a piece of scrap fabric around it. The fabric strip should encircle the T-shirt so it can be knotted or tied into a bow, depending on the preference.
