Make your band shirt a lot prettier!
I found this shirt at a MCR concert under somebody's foot.

Anyway, it's been sitting in my closet for over a year now and I finally decided that this shirt needed something.

Guys aren't the only ones who like to represent!

    I don't do well with measurements, so I just took some chalk and went ahead with how much I think I should take in.

    This fitting the shirt pretty much!
    Start with the sleeves, the very tip and then draw the line down to the very bottom, make sure it's even!

    To make it even more girly, I suppose I "cuffed" the sleeves, I don't exactly know what to call it.

    Anyway, I put elastic at the end of the sleeve and stitched it into place!

    Fold the tip of the sleeve over the elastic and sew the elastic into the sleeve.

    After you've cut the neck out, it should look like that. This makes the shirt a lot more feminine.

    You can stitch around the neck if you like, but I didn't so it would have an edge to it.

    You don't have to do this, but I did as an experiment; a risk.

    Measure down the back, my mark is 13 inches down from the neck.

    Make a bow!

    You can use glue or thread, but since I ran out of glue... I used thread.

    Not perfect, but close enough.

I have all these band shirts that I only like to wear when going to to a coffee shop or staying in my house, cause they are so bulky looking.
hoorah!

Cute! I have so many bands tees. But I am WAY too afraid to do something like that to any of them in fear of messing them up.
haha :p
