No Sew DIY Yoga Tops From T-Shirts Upcycle Tips:

Upcycling old t-shirts into wearable and stylish yoga tops without sewing is a super fun to do. All you need is the step-by-step instructions for each refashion design, and accurate measurements so that you can easily follow along. 

Determine your comfort level for the new neckline, shoulder and armhole drop measurements. For each no sew yoga top transformation, start by modifying the original neckline and armhole to make the tee into a sleeveless tank top.

I recommend to follow the general specs for each tutorial. However, you can also modify the top, drop the armhole lower or make the shoulder as wide as you wish.

From this point, comfortably continue with the t-shirt cutting techniques and use fabric glue to complete each no sew t-shirt reconstruction. I’ve put together upcycling tips and no sew hacks for you to review before getting started.

  • Cutting Tools: To be successful making any no sew clothing, you need proper cutting tools. For cutting along the armhole and curve lines, I recommend sharp fabric scissors. For straight lines or cropped hemlines, use a rotary cutter with a cutting mat underneath. Have your tools handy and ready for action. 
  • Fabric Chalk: To mark any lines and measurements, you need fabric chalk. Marks can easily be removed by damp water and a gentle wiping. Have white and black fabric chalk handy so that you are able to switch around for dark or light colored tops. 
  • Measuring Tape: A flexible measuring tape is a must-have tool when measuring a curved neckline and armhole. Get comfortable using this measurement tool instead of straight rulers all the time. 
  • Fabric Glue: Always test on a scraps to find the best fabric glue for clothes. I find it works best when applied small amount on the seam to join the two pieces together so it can dry quickly and the fabric won’t become too thick. For the best results, avoid applying double the adhesive on top of each other, so do not move the liquid stitch once the fabric is attached. 
  • Trims: ¾” width elastic was used on the strap tank top design. Fabric glue works well when attaching fabric and trims together. Feel free to add lace, buttons and elastic trims to upgrade your no sew t-shirt.
