|The finished product: an appropriately form-fitting shirt. Yay!|
When I worked for Apple, there was a time where their employees nifty shirts only came in American Apparel sizes for men. I hate the frumpy look of them, being rather petite (not to mention flat chested!), so I'd tailor them in.
During maternity, I had some size Large shirts that I purchased. Well, I'd like to still wear them without looking majorly frumpy. So I tailor them down. It's rather simple and for any crafter this is probably useless information, but I did have a couple of co-workers once upon a time that were excited at such an prospect so this is dedicated to them. :)
First I turned my shirt inside out so I could make markings on it. I always chose a tee that I wanted my shirts to be sized down to match. You trace the outline of the desired sized tee on to the shirt you are working on.
