I had two tops that were too small.  One shirt shrunk in the shoulders.. I work in a wholesale club so I get a work out on my arms.   the other shrunk the long way it was too short to wear to work and kept falling off my shoulders.  Here are the 2 shirts before

I made a few shirt that the arms were too tight bigger by adding a criss cross corset type decoration where I used t-shirt yarn for.  Like in  this close up

I'm thinking this is a sexy corset looking arm but a couple of my co-workers said they look like backpack tension things.... so I had a little fun and design this shirt to be my backpack  shirt... I added a pocket to the front.. it's not easy to see on my mini me,  But as you can see I added a D ring on the sleeve.   I wanted a long sleeved shirt cause I have a bunch of t-shirts now.... Plus I love the button to keep my rolled sleeves up if I get a little  warm at work.... 
So I have a backpack shirt now!! LOL

Your sleeve expansions are wonderful I like them very much.

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

That's totally cute!  And the D ring is very handy indeed.

Love the cris-cross detail - what a smart idea to use t-shirt yarn!
