This is the first project I'm sharing so be gentle with me!

I have resized a men's medium size t-shirt bought cheaply from the supermarket so that it fits me.

However, I'm not sure about the bottom. It looks a little plain. Does anyone have any ideas? Opinions in general welcome.

Thanks for looking,

Hello ,
 I think it looks really good so far ... If you really want to change the bottom id suggest .. add a little seambinding in a color other that black .. then if you have any left over ( wich you will ) you could add it to the edges of the sleeves to finish them off too.. if you havent used it before .. its super easy and im obssesed with it lately  Grin or even a little bit of black lace around the bottom would be cute ! if you do change anything please post it too ... Id love to see the final product !

Happy New year !

I think you should add a little bit of turqouise lace around either the bottom or the neckline. Otherwise, good job for your first recon.  Smiley

Thanks for your ideas and comments Smiley It's really nice to get feedback from people I consider experts Cheesy

I have bought some turquoisey-blue binding type stuff. I intend to shorten the hem a bit then edge it with the binding. If I have enough left and the inclination I may do the same to the sleeves.

I'll post a picture once I'm done (which may be a while, I seem to be far too tired to do anything involving much thought at the moment, and sewing requires thought for me (no machine)!).
