Business-ish In The Front, Party In The Rear T-shirt Refashion

The weather is hot, and I have an overwhelming desire to wear as little as possible.  Unfortunately, society dictates that the "mom crowd" should remain clothed (booo).  I'm not sure if there is an age cut off for open back t-shirts.  If there is, screw it, I need air flow.

I sacrificed a long sleeve t-shirt that I've had since before the princess was born.  Yikes, about 8 years.
Sacrificial long sleeve T
I proceeded to chop off the sleeves.
Fresher already.

 I also cut a straight line up the middle of the back of the shirt, which of course I didn't take a picture of.

Cut off the seams and cuff of one of the sleeves.

Cut 8 inches long by 4 inches tall.
 Sewed the strips down the back, and bunched the middle together and tied with a piece of scrap.
Also tied the shoulders with more scraps.

Now, when the wind is at my back, I can actually feel it.  Ahhhhh.  Thanks for looking!
