I got this shirt while working at a Chris Tomlin Concert early last year. I loved the words but they only had it in a XXL. I got it anyway because I KNEW I could recon it. Problem was I couldn't decide WHAT to do to it! lol

Well when Alexus1325 posted her shirt here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=336036.new
I knew what I wanted to do. And she was really sweet and shared how she did her shirt!
So Here's mine. I promise I did measure apparently the shirt was not only sewn slightly crooked before I cut it but they printed the text on without it being centered. *sigh*
I still love it though!

Oh my photography assistant (AKA hubby) Is not in at the moment so the "action shot" has no face Sorry about that!




I'd love comments! any comments on how you think of it! Also Any tips on sewing elastic in sleeves better would be greatly appreciated! I made a channel using scraps becasue just sewing it on did not work as planned. lol

Looks like I need to see my chiropractor I'm totally out of alignment...

I have one solid green big shirt too that someone gave me to recon and I'm considering doing the same thing to it!
Now If only spring would come a bit quicker! We had snow this weekend so I'm thinking either layering or waiting till spring....

Thanks so much for sharing how to do it! I totally love how girly it looks and the "cut" is so flattering!
