That fabric makes those shirts look absolutely beautiful. And I will definitely be using this tip for too small or stained shirts. Thank you!

Brilliant idea - my boyfriend (typical male) get that odour to his clothes pretty quickly. It's nice to have an idea in which I can use to fix up his favourites for him, as well as my own! Thanks for that

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.

It's so simple, but I would have never thought of doing this. I always tend to get little holes in my favorite shirts. I'm outdoors A LOT. What can I say, it's Washington :] 

What a freakin' great idea.

I, too, perspire a bit much for the female persuasion. What a great way to breathe new life into old, armpit-sad shirts. I'm also getting close to having my first baby, and am definitely considering doing this to a few of the shirts I know I won't be fitting into any time soon, so I can have some new, non-maternity stuff to wear as my belly starts to shrink.

Tip: don't wear knits I was able to wear all of my shirts until I was 9 months along, but my belly stretched all of my favorite knits out.  Next time I'll opt for tunics with empire waists and legging or dresses

what a great fix!  I love this idea!

Sometimes the only size t-shirt you can get is too small (like at a craft fair or concert!)...nice way to still wear it!

awesome! my best friend is always complaining about pit stains, so maybe that's something I could do for some of her t's. she's very materialistic, and although she is a creative person, she's really into designer clothes and shopping, and not so much a DIY-er. So I think I'll have to do it to one of my shirts first to prove that just cuz i did it at home doesn't mean it's not just as pretty (or prettier!) than any store bought designs. Anyway, thanks for the pit solution!
