Here’s a quick and dirty DIY if you have an awkwardly-fitting tank top lying around. The only ingredients required are a tank top and one pair of scissors. I paired mine with the bandeau top because it was so damn hot and gross today, but I think it would look equally cool layered over a dress or a top (a la Rodarte).

DIY tank
Rag Doll bandeau top
vintage jewelry
True Religion jeans

It's actually quite cool. Did you cut of parts of the fabric? It hangs wonderfully, I love it.

omg thank you soooo much for this DIY. lately i've been rolling my eyes at the slashed tee trend. but the reason why i am loving this one is because it seriously reminds me of the spine and reminded me of how ever since i was 15 i always wanted to create a tee had a print or something that mimicked my scoliosis. slashing would be the best option as i don't have a silk screen, ink, or any other fancy things needed to print tees. eeek…. im adding this to my long diy list. πŸ™‚

Great DIY! It kind of looks like ribs to me and I like it a lott. I would totally wear this over a mesh or lace bodysuit… ooh maybe I'll try it on a dress…

I forgot about TRs… I have several pairs but have been far too addicted to J Brand to wear anything else… but I kind of miss the lowwww cuts haha. Time to break them back out!
