I really don't know my fashion terminology.

Started with a standard adult small T-shirt. But as we all know, those adult smalls are anything but. I won't bore you with the process of construction, but I can sum up my steps if anyone wants.

Here it is:


Back:


I'm sorry I forgot to flip the mirror pictures! The front says "A Workman" and the back says the Bible verse 2 Timothy 2:15.

The only T-shirt reconstruction I've ever made that I actually like. I really like the band at the neckline. It's about 1.5" thick.

Thanks for looking Smiley

I love it!!  Just the other day I was going through all my clothes and I need to do some MAJOR resizing!  I would love to hear how you did it (if you don't mind sharing).

Great Job!!

that looks excellent and fits wonderfully- you did a really great job with the neckline. what's the significance of 'a workman' ?

Please please please -- how did you make that neckline?  That's exactly what I need to do -- looks like you used the bottom band, yes?

Do tell!

PS also those sleeves!  Our local AC Moore is selling plain colored tees 2/5.00, and if I can get this pattern, I'll be in tightwad heaven!

(Please? Pretty please? I'll be your best friend...)
