So I had a pub crawl to go to yesterday, and our "ticket" was a large men's t-shirt.  Usually girls just cut up their shirts, but I wanted something a little cuter and more finished-looking, so this is what I did with it.  You can see the original on my boyfriend (a pretty standard t-shirt), and then my modified version.

It was super easy and took less than an hour, and was so much more flattering than the original.  It's pretty self-explanatory but if anyone is interested in a tute I'd be happy to draw one up!

Let me know what you think, or if you have suggestions for future pub crawl t-shirt modifications!

I would also love a tute.  That looks like a lovely way to feminize all those man-size t-shirts hubby no longer wears cuz they're too small for him (yet too big for me!)  great job!

Yep, ditto on the tut request. I'm a complete newbie when it comes to altering clothes, and I love your design!

The "I have too much fun with Paint" tutorial!  Red lines indicate things you're modifying.  Let me know if you have any questions or if anything isn't clear.

Thanks for the tutorial. This looks like a quick and cute way to make a new tee!
