I have a really simple t-shirt reshaping for you today. This is a good tutorial for beginning refashioners who are feeling nervous about taking scissors to their clothes. I started out with a large men's t-shirt with a great graphic design (I have a thing for graphic Ts...and skulls...and colours...I LOVE THIS SHIRT).
I laid the shirt flat and matched the pins up on both sides. Then I marked out where I would cut to narrow the shoulders.
Now for that nerve-racking first cut!
Remove the excess, narrow the sleeve to your pinned measurements and reattach the sleeve.
I decided to cut and pin the sides as well and do all the seams in one go.
Sew the sleeves to the armholes, you will most likely have to bring the armholes in which you can do by continuing the side seam up. Then hem the sleeves by turning the raw edge under, pressing and sewing. Then try it on to make sure it fits.
Even a little bit of shaping can make a big difference!
