a shirt 2 short 2 a singlet just right :P
So you may have seen my plea for help on the "help" board on co+k.
Basically my boobs grew, i used to be quite flat, but not anymore - as a result, all my shirts are now too short!
this is what i came up with (sorry theres no before pic, but imagine a t shirt hanging over my boobs like a tent and up to my belly button)
so what i did was get a singlet that does actually fit and measure the width for the torso so the singlet will be fitted (or just measure your stomach). then i pinned and sewed the torso part amd trimmed excess.
i then took off the sleeves, and unpicked the shoulder part of the shirt so now its jst a big tube. i unpicked all seams on sleeves and ironed them flat, then folded in half and sewed a strap of desired width (1 1/2"), trimmed excess and turned right side out.
i put on the "tube" and measure how long i needed the straps to be (this is how i got the length back to my shirt)sew straps on
then obviously the width of the shoulder part on a shirt is wider than the new strap
so fold the excess fabric inside the shirt (youll have excess on the front and back around the arm hole) and sew a seam, and trim excess
singlet that fits and i didnt have to buy new clothes cuz of my stupid boobs! lol
hope that all made sense, i should have taken photos but i didnt actually think it was going to be a success.
p.s - dont forget to overlock or zigzag your raw edges!
