Those both look great!  Thanks for sharing this idea.  I have a couple of favorite shirts that are in need of saving!  Smiley

This is one of my personal favorite recons!  I have done a few this way, too, so that my favorite t-shirts will fit over my hips.

Love the floral...great choice!

Very nice fix!  The shirts look great!  For shirts that aren't quite amenable to that treatment, but you don't want pit stains on, get an aluminum free deodorant.  Most have some kind of zinc aluminum compound in them,  but there are a few out there that are ok that have no aluminum.  I use Tom's of Maine (available online, in Walgreens, and Trader Joes) and since starting to use it, I have had no nasty pit stains on my snow white, tissue thin t-shirts.  Hope this helps some people, and again, beautiful job on the t-shirts Smiley

Thats a great idea for my daughter who is a teenager and growing rapidly in certain areas  Smiley. Also to get a bit more wear out of shirts for when you're pregnant and not quite ready for full on maternity clothes!

Y'know, I thought about doing this to save one of the shirts my DD has loved and loved, and now I'm motivated to give it a go!

The lines down the side are rather slimming, as well!  Seems weird - make a shirt bigger and it makes the torso look smaller - is that against the laws of physics?Huh??

I have lots of big shapeless shirts, and I wonder if this could work to shape them up?  Seems easier (and faster) than those tutorials I've seen for deconstructing and reconstructing a big boxy t-shirt to fit better.

I don't have a serger, but my machine has overlock and zig-zag and such as options, so I'll have to give this a go!  Thanks for sharing - and nice work!
