All you need
- plain White t-shirt
- Navy fabric paint
- scissors
- Masking tape

I bought a cheap t-shirt for about £2.00, I bought it a little baggier than my actual size.

I than placed a tank top I liked the shape of an placed it ontop of the White t-shirt. If you don't have a tank top as a template you can draw a line on the t-shirt in pencil and customise your own shape.

I cut along the side of the tank top to get the shape I wanted for my White t-shirt. Do this on both sidesband you will have your desired shape.

When you have cut the sleeves off, draw an oval shape at the bottom of the t-shirt only at the front. So the t-shirt has two layers.

When you have cut the t-shirt to your desired shape. Place the t-shirt over a piece of wood. So you have a hard service to work on. Also this stops the paint from imprinting to the other side of the t-shirt.

Place masking tape onto the t-shirt to make a stripe shape. Make sure the masking tape in securely on the t-shirt so you get a perfect stripe.
Use a sponge to apply the fabric paint a spread the paint across the t-shirt. And let it dry for a couple of minutes.

Repeat the step a couple of times to get a fully striped t-shirt.

Let the t-shirt dry fully for a couple of hours before wearing it.
And voila the t-shirt is finished.

Voila
