1. Start with a t-shirt you love that’s just too big
2. Turn the shirt inside out and lay a shirt that DOES fit you on top of it, lining up the collars so that you can be sure it is centered over your large t-shirt.Trace the shirt that DOES fit you onto the large t-shirt. Turn both shirts inside out so that you don’t mark on the front of the shirts. I used a sharpie, but you’d be better off to use a washable marker, chalk or a fabric pen. When you do the sleeves, try to make your line parallel to the top shoulder.
3. Next, fold the large t-shirt in half to make sure that the armpit marks line up. Mine did match up, but if yours don’t, you can just re-mark them to match.
4 I went ahead and pinned the front and back of the shirt together, so that it didn’t slip while we were sewing.
5 Try on your shirt (inside out) to see how it fits. Mine was still a little big, so we sewed it up again about a 1/4” more on each side If you like the fit, then you can trim off the excess fabric.
You’re done! Try it on & love the new look - preferably with cute jeans…not gym shorts and bright blue fingernails. :) But hey…we don’t all do our crafting while looking our best, right?
