See, THIS is what I'm talking about to my husband when I told him I needed that new sewing machine. Smiley I am having a hard time with this kind of reconstruction but I've decided to try smaller projects first. Smiley

FABULOUS JOB!!!

220  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Slight Shirt Modification on: July 15, 2012 08:17:01 AM


This is an XL sized shirt by Mossimo, that I bought a couple weeks ago at my local thrift store. I think it cost me $2.99, and I like to Mossimo line already. I fell in love with this shirt when I saw it but I didn't try it on. Once I got it home and washed it, that's when I finally tried it on. I really should try the clothes on when I'm shopping for them. The store does have fitting rooms. (This is just the after picture, because this modification is so slight, it doesn't need a before picture.)

Anyway, I'm guessing this shirt shrunk at some point, because the arms were tight. Luckily for me, I found this tute over at Crafty Stylish (http://www.craftstylish.com/item/49711/easy-fix-for-that-tight-uncomfortable-sleeve) on how to fix that.

I won't run through it step by step here, but I dropped the hem, opened up the sleeve, and resewed it. samsstuff, the writer of the tute, has a much better way of explaining it.

I also removed the ties from this shirt. They were long thin ties, secured at the sides, up by that hem just below the bust. The rest of this shirt was loose and billowy, which is a look I love but doesn't work on me. I think it makes me look chunky or pregnant, and I don't want to look either. To take it in a little bit, I used a hint I learned from another shirt I bought at the thrift store.

I scored this awesome black and red checkered Torrid shirt, buttons down the front, collared and with 3/4 length sleeves. It has a line of buttons down the back as well, to cinch it in a little bit. I pinned the back of this shirt so that it was cinched too, and then sewed it down. This brought it in a little tighter by about 3/4".

I have a thin braided leather belt from some other piece of clothing that I think will look good with this shirt, so I can wear that on my actual waist instead of having it up high. I hope this shirt lasts me for a while, because the material is thin. I can't tell if it's supposed to be like that or if it's been well washed and well used.
