Have you ever noticed those packages of men's T-shirts that are like, oh, $10.00 for four shirts? Some of the packs have white shirts, some have multiple colors, some have round necklines, some have V's? I love re-designing these into something else... A T-shirt that fits me.
You will need:
1 Men's T-shirt in a size that is a little too big for you
Thread to match or contrast the Men's T-shirt
1 of your FAVE T-shirts
Some safety pins
Here's what you do... Purchase a package of men's T-shirts in a size that is a little too big for you. Any scraps cut away can be used for embellishments later. Wash the men's T-shirt so you don't have to worry about shrinkage.
Turn the men's T-shirt wrong side out and lay it on a flat surface. Once it is really flat, put a few safety pins around the edges and down the middle, so it can't wiggle crooked later.
Carefully fold back the sleeve on your fave shirt, exposing the line of the seam at the shoulder. Using your fave shirt for the pattern, cut the men's T-shirt along the sleeve seam of the fave shirt. Cut away the remainder of the men's T-shirt sleeve. Keep the men's sleeve. We will need it later.
Attach sleeve. If you like to keep things simple, stop right here.
Here's my new FAVE shirt! I love it! Make one for yourself and share the joy!
