T Shirt Upcycle to Open Back Tank Top

"Making fun tank tops for the gym out of my old worn out t shirts is probably my favorite type of upcycle! It's so fun and quick, and there are so many things you can do with a t shirt! If you've got an old t shirt (maybe with worn out armpits like mine did!) that needs transformed, give this stylish open back tank top a try. This style is so fun because you can wear it two ways, with the back open and loose or with the bottom corners tied for a cool look that shows less skin."
