A week or two ago, I went to a Latin convention for high school students in Vancouver, BC, and was given the obligatory convention shirt. Unfortunately, due to a miscommunication, our entire group received shirts in size XXL. I am most definitely not an XXL.

(Please excuse the weird angle).

There was no way that I could wear that shirt in public. It came down almost to my knees! And I had enough sleep shirts. So, I decided to recon it. See if I could make it smaller somehow. After all, what did I have to lose?

I think it worked pretty well.
I used a T-shirt that fit well as a pattern, and made it up as I went along. This is the original shirt with the pattern shirt:


I'm thrilled with how it turned out - now I can actually wear my shirt!

Great recon! It fits you fabulously now.

Also - I just had to say - I absolutely LOVE your "Schrodinger's Cat is Dead" t-shirt. Fabulous geekery.
