Gators T-shirts have hidden individuality-- it just takes a pair of scissors to cut it loose. Follow these simple steps to transform your old gym shirt into a custom-made halter-top for Game Day!

1. Pick a shirt and size you will use. Most cotton T-shirts, like the one pictured, will not have a skin-tight fit, which is fine.

2. Flip over your shirt and cut from the corner of one sleeve to the other. Make sure you are only cutting through the back side of your shirt.

3. Cut straight down the center of your shirt from the neckline until it meets the cut you just made. Remove the tag.

4. Cut off both sleeves next to the seam. If you lift the pieces still connected to the shirt, you can begin to see the straps.

5. This is where you can customize your shirt. Try it on to see how low you'd like the neckline. Depending on the image on the front of your shirt, you can cut it into a V-neck, swoop, square or any other cut you imagine. Follow the cut of your neckline into the straps. You can make them as thick or thin as you'd like. Fold the shirt in half so that you can make them even.

6. Admire the final product. Remember that each halter-top is unique and will fit every body type differently. Once you've tried it on, mess around with each cut to perfect it. Enjoy!
