Easy Way to Crop Your T-shirt Without Cutting!

1 Material

I love versatile things that can by styled in many different ways. It’s more sustainable and better for environment (less clothes to buy and waste), your wardrobe (less space taken) and your wallet 😄 Therefore I always get excited when I find new ways of wearing my clothes. This T-shirt crop hack is so simple, but it gives you a possibility to create a totally new look!

I already posted a tutorial explaining how to crop a T-shirt by tucking it into your belt loops. However if you are wearing a bottom without belt loops or want your T-shirt to be shorter, it will not be the right way. So here is another method of cropping your Tee, that will work perfectly in this situation.

Before I go to the hack I hope you follow me on my other social pages:

For this crop hack you will need a hair tie or a rubber band. Use the same colour rubber band/hair tie as your T-shirt.

Step 1: Pull the bottom side part of your T-shirt out. At this step you can decide how much fabric you want to grab and how short your cropped T-shirt would be.

Step 2: Wrap the rubber band or hair elastic around the bottom, just like if you were making a ponytail.

Step 3: Now hide the knot and tied fabric by tucking it inside.

You are ready to go with your fresh look and your T-shirt styled in a totally different way than usual!

Let me know in comments if you are going to try it.

    I really liked your idea.

    You might also use two hair/rubber bands. Re-fold and arrange the excess material outward, instead of folding under the shirt. Gather and arrange it around the first band, make the material into the appearance of a flower, …if you have enough material.

    Love this! As a woman of mature age, I will most likely tie the shirt a bit lower so as to not revel my midriff. I think I can pull it off!
