These were the easiest reconstructions!  I took two unflattering shirts, either too short or wide, cut them in half and added a tighter midsection.  I don't have the before pictures, but trust me, they're much better this way!



Thanks for looking!

How is it that it never occurred to me to do this?! I have tons of shirts that are both too short and too wide and I always end up giving them to Goodwill. I am an idiot.

What a great idea.  I might be able to salvage a bunch of too short and wide tops now, thanks!

Aw, thanks for the comments everyone.  It took me a looong time also to realize the simple solution to fixing these shirts.  It's also a good way to salvage fabric from a stretchy, but unfixable shirt, by using it for the midsection, which is what I did on the purple and black one. Anyway, thanks for looking...I'm glad this was helpful to some of you!!
