I recently went to a free M.I.A. concert my school was hosting (which was amazing) and me and my friend recieved XL concert tees (I'm guessing for our mad dancing skills lol) and I dont want to completely chop it up/reconstruct it just cut it down to my size... if anyone has any links that might help or any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated! I want to wear it out ASAP Grin Thanks!

P.S. Sorry I don't have a pic but it says HOW MANY HOW MANY on the front and M.I.A. on the bottom back of the shirt.

And your size is? Without this information we can't offer much help. Techniques will be different depending on you.

OK Smiley

going from an XL to a Small is going to require total reconstruction in order to look good.
Typing from hubbys computer so I have none of my links saved :/ but I think there is a tute or two here on craftster for cutting down a mens tee into a girly shape, those may be handy for pictures.

Essentially you will open up the sides of thee completely removing the sleeves.
Trim the tee to your size. Whether you fit it in girly or leave it straight is entirely up to you Smiley
Trim down the sleeves to your size.
Re-attach the sleeves to the tee in a new sleeve opening you cut from the shortened body of the tee (the original sleeve opening will be too big).
Sew up the sides of the tee, done!
