Too small? Make it bigger!
So I had a Tokio Hotel shirt that was getting too small, but I still wanted to wear it.
It had a hole in the collar and was generally, well, getting too small for me.
Using an awesome cut-up back shirt I saw on here, I decided to use it to make this shirt bigger.

Love the outcome!

    Does it have a hole in the neckline, like mine?
    If so, good. You're gonna cut it off.
    Seriously, I still don't know how I got this hole.
