T-Shirt Makeover

This sewing project was done for my most difficult client... my daughter. She won a "Lord of the Rings" t-shirt in a contest and wanted it refitted. Of course, contest winnings are always sized XL and it hung like a bag on her small frame.

Using Jalie Patterns (#2005), I remade the shirt into a more flattering cut so it would be usable for everyday wear.

If you have a t-shirt that's too big, or perhaps you don't like the boxy look of a standard tee, I can give it a makeover and create a more flattering style.

Below is a view of the t-shirt before the makeover, with sleeves removed.

The finished tee (left) looks so much better!
