Do you have a shirt that's to tight? Here's a unique solution
I had a shirt that was too big, so I tried to make it smaller. The result being it didn't even fit my younger brother, who is a toothpick XP so I found some lace and wiped it together as such (: Im quite happy with my creation, and this is my first tutorial, so if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask ^-^

And sorry for the lack of photos! I did this at a friends house, and I had no camera

  • Step 1

    Cut the sides of the t shirt.
    I first slit the sides then I cut the triangle shapes. (I cut it to just below my underarm) Do to both sides, it doesn't have to be and even number.

  • Step 2

    Get your lace and cut it so its the same length of the side of your shirt. Make two for both sides.
    NOTE: the lace should be as wide as how much you need to add on. My lace I had to sew two ends together to make it as wide as I needed it.

  • Step 3

    Okay, the next part I found really easy, but it can be tricky for some.
    What I did is I just sewed the pointy ends of the triangles to the lace, starting from the bottom with my sewing machine. Going back and forth several times, and I just worked my way up accordingly.
    But if you would like to make it precise, I suggest you pin the ends to the lace first then sew.

  • Step 4

    Cut all the loose thread ends and voila! your finished! ^.^
