I’m loving all the cold shoulder tees out there right now! We even have one long sleeved version in our shop. But I wanted a short sleeved one, and haven’t been able to find the perfect color or style just yet.

So I decided to whip up a couple on my own. The first DIY, pictured below, is literally the easiest one you could ever do. It involved a little snip, snip and you’re done.

Step 1: Find tee that you like. I selected a loose fitting one that’s a couple sizes up from what I normally wear because I wanted it to be more flowy.

The next version took a bit more time, and involves a small amount of sewing. But it’s still easy for a newbie to sewing to do – I simply used a needle and thread – no machines needed here.Cold shoulder top DIYStep 1: Select your tee. I picked a men’s medium. It was inexpensive (just $4.97), and I liked the color.
