Love the shirt but not the shape of the neck. Cut the old neck out and made a little hem with the twin needle. Then made some folds on the shoulder. I decided not to change the shape of the shirt,I will wear a small belt on it

Oh! What an interesting way of doing the shoulders. It'd bring them right up with a minimum of stitching.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I wasn't into alot of sewing,cutting the sleeve out,making it smaller etc. I played a little and this is how it turned out. I'm happy with the result

Clever way you shortened the too-big shoulders. Of all the t-shirt recons I've seen, I've never seen anyone do this. Great idea!

What a clever idea those folds are! It gives an interesting look, while solving a common problem.
