  • Step 1

    Divide your waist measurement by 6 and the add 1(x). (Example: for a 30" wasit, divide by 6 and to get 5" add 1 to get 6".) Lay the T-shirt flat and cut a 24"long (slighhtly trapezoidal) strip from each one, using the measurement x for the width of the top of eachstrip. The width of the bottom of each strip should be 1 1/2" wider than the top.
