Here's a simple t-shirt fix, this shirt was waaay too small for my 'new and improved' girth, so I serged in two red panels on the sides! I love that I don't have to hold onto this beloved tshirt until I'm skinny enough someday to wear it again, I can wear it now, and if I lose inches later, I can simply serge the panels skinnier, or out! Hubby's asking me now if I can 'fix' some of his shirts. ^_^

Big props to marieC, who inspired me! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=265039.0

It's as much fun to scare as to be scared.

Awesome!! I have a 30 Seconds to Mars tshirt I got at a thrift store that I have prepped to do the same thing. But I used remnants of a black tshirt. I also have a HIM shirt that I want to do the same thing with!

Contrasting fabrics almost always work better :/.

OP: I need to do this for many of my shirts, I'm just that damned lazy.

I saw the original thread and didn't comment because it's a bit old. I'm glad you took a picture with your arm raised so I could see the whole thing. Do you find that the shirt folds weird around the body at all because the way the panel is sewn in? I'm worried that changing around the seems will make the shirt fall differently on the body. Also, did you just use another T-shirt for the red panel? Thanks.

Thanks for posting your pics, it looks great!  I am plus size so any reconstruction I attempt will always have to be with something that does not fit me....I have not tried anything yet but your project might be just what I need to do first!
