Turn a big, boxy t-shirt into a fitted T!






Again, I must credit much of my inspiration to Threadbangers. I'm thoroughly addicted to this site. Thoroughly. Like badly-addly.

LOVE THIS! :) I can put my sewing machine to great use with this new idea! Thanks! And, it was super great to hear your voice!

Leann said...

My t-shirt drawer is about to get a make-over!!! LOVE.THIS!!!!! Your voice is adorable, too. Higher than I imagined. You would say mine is lower than imagined, btw. LOL I am saving this video and you WILL see it on my blog at some point in the near future with full credit and a weekend full of photos from my own project time. :)

awesome tutorial! I've been slowly making my regular tees into tees with capped sleeves but I always have some trouble getting the seams to line up.

I was doing the sleeves separately, do you ever run into to trouble with the sleeves this way? Do you just run the side seam all the way out to the sleeve edge?

I'm speechless. It's official. You are the cutest and most clever of creatures. Underachievers like me look up to gals like you! WORD!

Christine said...

Ames, I just run that side seam all the way up. And with that particular shirt, one of the sleeves didn't line up great, but it's under my pit - so it won't be terribly noticeable.

When you use a solid color T, it doesn't matter much at all.

Again - not rocket science, and keeping it simple - thus showing that I'm not quite as amazing as Shan makes me out to be!! :)

Oh, that's fabulous! My sewing skills are pretty poor, but this sounds like an easy project that wouldn't make me too mad if I messed it up. Thank you so much!

Super nifty! Although I need a boxy T to cover my uhm... full figure. ;) This is my first visit, but I will definitely be back. Btw, my hubby went to Howard Payne! Small bloggy world!
