I have gained some weight recently and my already large shirts need to become larger. I cannot think of any way to make a t-shirt larger than to add panels on the sides, but I think it will be obvious that I made my shirt bigger. I would like to know if anyone has any ideas for making shirts and t-shirts larger. FYI I am not a great sewer, patterns confuse me, so I do not make anything from scratch. Thanks!

I found it easier to wear tank tops under my shirts and leave the top or all  buttons open, as if the shirt was a lightweight jacket.  You can add panels but that involves considerable cutting and measuring, not easy if you aren't comfortable sewing.

You can open the seams on the sides and add lacing to them (like hemp cords or leather cords). That way, they will be "adjustable" but look intentional instead of I-gained-weight.
