Terrible picture! He refused to model and went into the disastrous toy room instead.

I liked this shirt but the sleeves were too big and the length was too short.

Cut off the sleeves and the collar

Cut up the middle & sew each half into a tube.

Put one tube inside the other, right sides facing, and sew the curve. Attach the collar as the waistband.

The closing can go anywhere, I thought this looked best on the side.

Here's the back.
They're kind of girly and almost too short already.
I don't think we'll keep them, but I was pretty pleased with my 15 minutes' worth of work.
I have a tonnnn more shirts like this in my "can you use this for something?" pile, but they're all girly and I have two boys.
Ah, well. There's always the craft shows.

fabulous quick recon - must remember this for the babe who goes through 4 pairs of pants a day.  Can't have too many pairs, can't make them quick enough.   Thanks!

Too girly?  I think they're fabulous for a boy!  Especially for 15 minutes of work.  I've seen this before for grown-up sized pants/capris out of an XL shirt, and I'm still amazed how the sleeve holes become the crotch of the new pants.  It's like magic!

I made myself some out of a lg tee with that tutorial! They didn't cover my booty too well. That's why I like using the collar.

Oh, btw, I just went through my stash and realized most of them don't have buttons or snaps that go up through the collar. You don't really need them, since it's stretchy enough. You can just sew the collar into a circle.

Genius!  My daughter likes wearing pj pants under her nightgowns and it's hard to find pants that don't come in a set. Now I can make her some . . . thank you!

Those are cute!  I make these all the time for my baby boy.  The girl shirts tend to flare out on the side, so it looks like he's wearing bell-bottoms.

they look great to me!!! and in the spring/summer, they'll probably be even shorter, and cuter in my opinion.
thanks for taking the time to put up a tute
