T-Shirt Surgery: A Y-Back Top

y-back tank back

I got this t-shirt from my furious upholdski T.S. Helliot, it says This is how I roll on the front! Psych! Double psych, I don't even own a rolling pin.

You cut this the same as for a regular racerback, only you make the middle strip super skinny. But otherwise, it's just the same and you use your curve ruler to smooth out the corners. You may find that the arms of the Y in back don't match up with the front yoke; but you just use the curve ruler to smooth that out, too.

Freshly cut, the edges look a little raw. Don't worry, they'll smooth out with one wash.
