Ever since I gained weight, it's been difficult to find golf shirts that fit me well.  Most of the ladies shirts in the stores were either too tight around the chest, too short, or just plain too small.  So I thrifted some mens shirts last weekend that were size XL.  I altered one of the shirts today, and now it looks like this:


Here's what it looked like before (not the same one pictured above, but the fit was exactly the same).



It's not a very dramatic re-fashion, but I'm happy with how it fits.  I was going to shorten the shoulders and add a cap sleeve, but it's too hot to sew today.  I think the long shoulder seam ends up looking like a short little sleeve anyway.

Great fit - the long shoulder seam looks so like a small sleeve/cap.  Well done !
