How to make a wrap shirt

1. Cut the DIY wrap shirt

Fold your fabric in half. Then, cut a slit along the fold; this will be for your neck hole. You can make the slit as long or as short as you want. Your head should be able to fit through it, of course.

And…that’s it! Now it’s time to style the DIY wrap-around shirt. 

Wearing the shirt off the shoulder

Here’s the first simple style: simply placing a little of the shoulder on the side. I suggest wearing a tank top or cami underneath. I also wore a pink strap to give the whole look a fun pop of color.

For the second style, I tied the bottom sides together on each side of the DIY wrap-around shirt. I then placed one side a little off my shoulder.

I love how fun and casual this look is! The top sits snug around my hips and creates an oversized effect, too.

For this style, simply roll the front part of your DIY wrap shirt until your waist.

Then, tie the short ends around your waist, at the back.

In this style, you’re going to be doing the same as the third style, but this time, roll the back part until your waist, wrap the ends around, and tie the ends in the front. 

Folding the bottom upwards to make a belt

Now, fold the fabric in front upward so that you create a belt-like style, wrap the fabric around your waist to the back, and tie a knot.

Tucking the DIY wrap shirt in at the back

Tuck the knot into your pants, so it’s not visible, and you’re done!

I love this look, it’s super trendy, and the cropped style cinches the waist, perfect for those who love showing off their curves!

For the final style, move your DIY wrap-around shirt so that the longer bottom pieces sit on your sides and drape over your arms. This is another way to get a little cropped effect!
