Note that the gap should not be too big which is result in a slouchy t-shirt and it will not look good with the bow design on the back.

But don’t make it overdone by doing too many which will cover your whole back and the purpose of the back bow t-shirt will not work anymore. Cut the fabric in measured length for the bows and add smaller pieces for each bow so that you can put it in the middle to give it the proper shape. You can use needle and thread to create the bows and sew them by hand. Now, place each bow in the middle of the gap and arrange them by keeping same amount of space at each interval. Use a sewing machine to add the bows on both sides. Cover the sides of each bow with the back part of the t-shirt to make it look like the bows are added from inside the t-shirt. That’s it!

It is a pretty and stylish design and you will get the best compliments if you know what colors or patterns to combine among the t-shirt and the bows. So, when are you going to make one for yourself?
