 Hello everyone  Smiley

   Ok so here is the story ... my good friends/neighbors  got me a shirt for Christmas ... well novelty shirt companies obviously think Men are the only people who like funny shirts .. and therefor only make them in huge mens sizes .. so through no fault of my friends .. the shirt was a size mens small and still huge ..so I had to fix it ... I love it now .. tell me what you think ....

I dint have a before shot .. but we all know what a boxy oversized mens tee looks like ....

Now for the After shots and an important PSA  Wink

" Practice Safe Lunch ... Use a condiment ! "

 Embarrassed Shocked Oh No you can see my socks in this one  Shocked

Oh here let me put on the Awesome boots I got for Christmas  Grin

 much better  Wink lol

OK now for the super easy tute ... this can be done by recon or from scratch just as easy .. take your t- / or doubled layer of "fresh" fabric and cut it like this

leave a lil seam allowance of course and sew side seams

then fold a piece of fabric right size in .. and cut this shape and

pin along the seam ..and sew till the first "corner"/ bend , change of angle what ever you wanna call it ...
you will only have one seam per sleeve .. make 2 sleeves

 attach the sleeves to the shirt by finding the seam of the sleeve and the side seam of the shirt line thees up ( this is your armpit) pin all the way up on the right and left side of the arm pit .. and WA la sleeves are attached .. then you simply add cuffs if desired ( I made mine from the sleeves of the original shirt. Wink ).. and make a tube for your neck line and a tube for your bottom band .. once you get to step 3 you will see it comming together ...
if you have any Questions feel free to ask

Thanks for looking .. and Id love to hear your openions
have a great day

That's so cute...and your tut makes it sound so simple! I have been hoarding t-shirts trying to get brave enough to cut them up. Maybe I'll try this!

Looove your boots!! Cheesy

Ooh thanks for posting this tute... I need it.  I've wanted to reconstruct a Gir shirt I bought at hottopic a couple years ago that shrunk horribly after I washed it.  I think I'll use your tute and just add more fabric to the bottom maybe.  Your shirt looks really cute!
