Don't get rid of that top that's a size or so too small just yet

If you have a top that is too small that you don't want to part with or you found one in the store that is a little bit too small that you love and you have a fabric that will go great; this project is for you :)

Instructions


  1. How to resize a t-shirt. If A Top Is Too Small... - Step 1 1

    Take a top that is too small for you and measure the length of the seam from the seam at the tip of the underarm to the bottom of the shirt

  2. How to resize a t-shirt. If A Top Is Too Small... - Step 2 2

    mark the a portion of the second top/ extra material with the length wise measurements. I kind of estimated the width for me (I figured anything more than the original would fit me better-- I cut out 2-7.5x44 centimeter (3inx17in) pieces from the second fabric. you may need to finish the raw edges where the bottom will be seen

  3. 3

    Cut the top along the seam from the seam at the tip of the underarm to the bottom of the shirt on both sides.

  4. 4

    pin the 2 pieces of fabric to the top along the seam, with both unfinished edges facing inward.

  5. How to resize a t-shirt. If A Top Is Too Small... - Step 5 5

    sew along the pin line created and you are done :)

Ithought of doing this to a shirt I resized, it was one of the first I'd ever done, and I made it way too small (I forgot to add a seem alowance!) but never tryed becuase I didn't know if it would work. Now I will! Thanks so much for the cool how-to! :)
