I've had the same problem with those Michael's shirts.  They just aren't very stretchy and they shrink.  Perfect solution...thanks!

I've had this in my favorites for quite some time now.  Being rather um... Rubenesque... I have a hard time finding really cute tshirts (the ones with the snarky sayings LOL) that fit right.  I have a whole collection I've bought at the Sally simply because they're cute, thinking I'd do something with them.  Now I have something to do!

Of course, I forgot this idea when I was in NY and didn't buy one of the women's tshirts for Wicked because they were too small.  Doh!  I cannot brain today... I has the dumbs.

I love the idea. Makes me wish I had a serger. Or a sewing machine. And maybe if the shirt is too short, you could also add a strip to the bottom in the same fabric to lengthen it. Gosh, I really want to try this.

I am painfully aware of the... unnecessary and constant issue in the underarms. I actually paid way way too much money getting botox to get rid of it (for a year...). As a rule, I don't ever, ever wear gray. It would be possible though with your idea- great post, great job!

These look awesome - and I like your fabric choice.

My sister always tells me she'd love to wear tight tees but she can't because of the little stains that form under the armpit. I've never noticed them, but that's how she feels. And that fabric could make them invisible.

Cool idea.

I've bookmarked this in case I want to try this later... afraid the seams would be uncomfortable for me, though...
