Hi everyone. I haven't seen any posts about the way I resize my shirts, so I thought I'd share.
I might be what you crafty ladies (& gentlemen) would consider a lazy craftster. I like to throw stuff together and just see what works. Skipping steps is always awesome for me.
These things considered, I cringe at the thought of removing sleeves from shirts when they are just fine in the first place
, just oversized. SOOOO I do not remove them when I do my shirts. I simply shape the shirt as so that the extra width of the shirt almost becomes part of the sleeve. But it doesn't actually look like that's what's happening when you wear it.
So basically, I just cut off extras from the side of the shirt, and the bottom of the sleeve.
This shirt doesn't show it that well because I'm not the best at reconstructing yet, and the fact that I didn't make it very tight because I just want to wear it under t-shirts...but it does work and you can make the arms and torso slimmer in one big swipe!
Another bonus of this method is that the sleeves stay the same length!!!
Hopefully someone will find this helpful.
