my shirt was a short sleeve t-shirt that was too big for me. so if your shirt isn't too big for you, skip step 1 please.

1. turn the shirt inside out. sew up along the sides to get a smaller shirt. then cut off the extra.

2. cut off the neck of the shirt. for my shirt, i just cut around the regular neck line and then put it on. if it isn't big enough of a cut for you, cut more off. be careful, cus you can always cut more, but you can't put it back on (w/o some extra work). depending on how you cut will also depend on how much it'll be off your shoulder.

3. for mine, i sewed the edges because my shirt was really stretchy and didn't "roll" well. so i overcasted it, which makes a nice look, rather than just a regular hem.

4. i also darted my shirt near the armpits on the front and the back because it was saggy there. turn it inside out and pin it and then try it on before you sew it to make sure it'll fit.

hope that works for everyone.. sorry about the crappy pictures, i never said i was an artist. lol. if anyone does it, send me a picture for sure, i'd love to see it!

my shirt was actually alot easier than i thought it would be, cus i never knew how to do them. this weekend, i'll probably do the same thing to another shirt, so i'll try to make a detailed tute for you (i love ones that you can actually understand hah). so if you want one, message me.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / wool sweater- too small on: April 25, 2004 08:38:39 AM
sorry for posting this, there is a few other posts about sweaters being too small. i've imed almost all of them trying to see if they ever found something to do with it, a few of them had, but the ideas were different that what i was going for.

i have a blue wool sweater from j. crew that got shrunk. i'm in love with it though, but the arms are too tight on me and the bottom is too short. i don't want to turn it into a skirt, i don't really think the material would work with that. plus, i'd like to keep it as a sweater. if worse comes to worse, i think i'll make it into mittens, but i'd really like to keep it as a sweater. i would just try to reconstruct it but i'm not sure how wool takes cutting and such. any ideas? if you need a picture to help form better ideas, im me and i'll give you one.

oh, i know EXACTLY how you feel. but i broke my seam ripper the other day, so i've been using scissors. trust me, seam rippers go SO much faster than trying to cut it with scissors. have fun! and good luck!

i'm not sure. i might add it to a messagner bag that i got from a thrift store that i've been carrying around lately. it was just done out of fun, but i think i'm going to try to make some other creations soon. any ideas? i think i want to make a turtle and perhaps ice cream and maybe some happy bananas.

this is a link to a site that has a guide for making a skirt outta a sweater. it might not be exactly what you're looking for, but it might work.

good luck! tell me when you come up with something!
