Beating the heat? Sort of. It's quite comfortable, easy to create and fun to paint over and give any old tees a new look! I have taken to cropped tees. :)
Pick up old tee.
Put it on, draw a line at the length you want it to be.
Take it off and get ready to chop.
Leave an inch or so for a hem if you want and it's that easy!
I took to chopping up the collar area too. But cut just aroud the rim because it ends up stretching and will wnd up falling off.
In that event, you can always make yourself a pair of straps to hold up the tee. To give it the rough look, just cut a hole a little below the new neckline and tie in strips from the cloth you just cut off the tee.
