Trying to figure out how to tie a knot in a shirt? It’s a super easy and a great way to accentuate your waist or create a waistline!
Let’s talk about how to tie a knot in a shirt
If you’re wearing an oversized tee, or want to create or accentuate a waistband when wearing a skirt, tying your tee in a knot is a perfect solution. So let me show you how to tie a knot in a shirt.
But first let’s address a few questions about knotting a shirt.
Which shirts are best for knotting your tee?
Most t-shirts work for knotting, but an oversized tee withs some stretch will definitely work the best.
Also, if you watch the video below, you’ll see how I tuck the bottom of the tee underneath. If your tee is too large, it might cause some bulk when you tuck it under. So choose one that’s not super thick or really oversized.
Do your shirts stretch out from knotting your t-shirts?
I haven’t had any issues with shirts stretching out. They get wrinkled from being in the knot, but as soon as I wash them, they go back to their original shape.
Is it best to knot your shirt in the middle or on the side?
This is totally personal preference. I like knotting my t-shirts a little off to the side, but you can do it in the middle or on the very side. Whatever feels best for you!
What happens when I lift my arms?
This is one of my most frequently asked questions when I talk about knotting my tees. Do my stomach or undergarments show when I lift my arms with a knotted tee? Here’s my answer…I don’t really lift my arms that much during the day. Are you lifting your arms often during the day??
But also, when you knot your tee, pull your knot tight so the knot is tight but the tee still has some looseness. Watch in my video between steps 2 and 3 and you’ll see it in action. You don’t want all the fabric pulled tightly into the tee. The looseness will allow for plenty of movement without exposing everything.

Here’s how I knot shirts
- Gather your tee into a “ponytail”
- Wrap it around itself and create a knot. Pull your knot tight so it won’t come loose.
- Tuck the bottom of your tee under so it hits around your natural waist.
