well, my friend gave me her beloved HIM shirt, which doesnt quite fit her right, to reconstruct! its too big, and she wants something snazzy.. i know there's so many ideas out there, but i need a fool-proof one! (it has a really nice looking heartagram on there, too!)

 any brillant ideas?

well, if it's WAY WAY too big, you can cut under the arms and down then re-ajust the size using some gromits and ribbon, corset style kinda thing. You can also do that allong the back. Thats what I've done with most of my big shirts.

Petrifiera had a good tute for fitting a shirt with safety-pin corset-ish effects somewhere on her MYDIY site (wish I had the URL... Sad I'm sure it's on Craftster somewhere)- I've used that on a couple of shirts.
Basically what you do is make two parallel vertical lines of safety pins down the front of the T-shirt and lace them up with ribbon. If the design on the front covers the whole T-shirt, you could put them on the back of it.

Here's a link to the same style Kuolema was talking about:


It's fairly fool-proof, and if she doesn't like it, you can always take the safety pins out.

i have found an answer... a halter top! simple, yet functional. i'll post the results of my labor elsewhere, once i get my camera working, that is.  Grin
