61  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can someone help me figure out how to fix the size of this shirt? on: October 01, 2004 09:11:43 AM
No, I don't have a serger, and I am not sure anyone I know does either...I can try the rolled hem thing...I just have never sewn curves before, so I wonder if it will bubble up you know?

Thanks for the tips!
62  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Can someone help me figure out how to fix the size of this shirt? on: October 01, 2004 08:15:33 AM
Hi guys,
I am hoping someone here can help me. I scored a sweet vintage western shirt on eBay last year for part of a halloween costume. It looks something like this one, but with red flowers and some stripes:



Anyway, I am thinking I'd actually like to wear it. It looks great with beat up jeans...the problem is that since it's a man's shirt, it's a bit longer than it should be, and it hugs too tight down on my hips, and looks frumpy...It fits perfect on the top though...

I want to figure out how to shorten it a bit so it just grazes my hips. I am an advanced-beginner sewer (I'm a quilter) but I have never sewn clothing before, so I have NO IDEA what to do here. I don't want to ruin the thing, you know? I'd like to maintain that curvy bottom too, if I could.

Can one of you awesome craftsters out there tell me how I can go about this? If I can do this successfully, I'll post before and after pics of the shirt...

Wow, your's came out great! I am working on one for my friend, I think I'll add the button closure like you! Good idea!

Hooray! I am glad you guys like it! When I was done with it, I did think it looked a little wallety! I would say the book itself is about 3.5 inches square, and the cat applique is about 2 inches across diagonal. The bird's wingspan is about the size of a quarter.

I feel kind of lame posting this since it's pretty basic and not particulalry fabulous, but I thought it was kinda cute...I'm a quilter, so I have a lot of hand sewing needles that were scattered throughout the house in their little packages. So I made a little felt book to store them in...I used orange and brown wool felt (I love that stuff) for a nice 70's vibe...I appliqued the cat and bird on, and embroidered the little bee. There are 2 pages inside to slide the needles into.
