P.S. See details after the break on how to make this happen or check out the Aqui blog


All info from Aqui blog

 you will need:
-t-shirt
-fabric Sheers
-thread/ needle
-patience
1. Start by lightly drawing a rounded upside down T shape on the shirt and cut along the lines.
 2. Next cut the middle piece into three strips and braid.
3. Next cut each side section into three three strips.
*Tip* I cut out fabric in between the strips but if you want thicker braids, don't leave any space.
4. Now, cut each of those three sections into three more strips and braid. You should end up with three braids on either side, pointing toward the middle.
 5. Sew each of these braids to the center braid and carefully cut off excess fabric.
6. Now it's time to create the top. Cut off the sleeves at the seam and cut the fabric into three sections, just as you did with the back. Braid the fabric and tie off with rubber bands, bobby pins, or safety pins so they won't unravel as you assemble. 
7. Last, sew the straps to the middle piece at the neck and cut off excess fabric. Enjoy!
