My husband and I are going to a concert this Saturday. Recently having a baby, most of my clothes are a little tight and our funds are low. So, I decided to refashion an old t-shirt, also stretching it just enough to fit a little more flattering to my body. I'll post a better "after" photo Saturday, when I'm not in my Pajamas
I started with a basic fitted t-shirt. In this case...very fitted...lol
I cut the neck and sleeve hems out and stretched them until they rolled.
I then started on the sides, cutting 1 inch strips about as wide as my finger, all the way down. Once I was finished cutting, I pulled each side to roll. If you are working with a bigger shirt, you may want to pull the seams out and tie them together. I didn't.
I then folded my shirt in half and started working on the back. I used a ruler to create an angle, and cut strips into the back, making sure the front of the shirt wasn't in the way. I stretched the strips so they would curl. Then I turned it around and made a couple strips in front (not pictured)
Slid it on. Side view. Now, not so tight.
