DIY Choker Tee with TheFabJunkie

If anything is on trend this season, it’s the fab choker t-shirts that are popping up everywhere.

I know when you hear the phrase t-shirt, it doesn’t seem reasonable around this time of year. Oh but they are the MOST reasonable thing ever. T-shirts never go out of style and can be worn for just about any event. What I love most about the chocker tee is the fact that it just screams ROCKER CHIC. This basic tee can be layered under a leather jacket or cardigan.

After doing some research, I realize that this “on trend” tee can cost a pretty penny. So I decided to grab my scissors, an old tee that I thrifted years ago and get to cutting.

Check out my step by step CHOKER TEE DIY!

You want to measure how far down you want your “V”. Using the measuring tape and marker to make a teeny tiny dot to where you will cut. Use your scissor to make a hole in the shirt by the collar and start to cut.
