ok so i used a shirt that i thought fit me pretty well, i followed the pattern on oh my stars. well. the front looks like it will be fine after i tweek it a little for my taste. but the back is just hanging there. looking very weird. whats the best way to fix this? maybe turn it inside out and pin to make it tighter and then just serge it? and is there a better way to go about doing this for next time? im guess any shirt i use will have to be made smaller. im just thankful i used a black plain shirt that doesnt mean anything to me!!! any ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated!!! i know alot of you are almost pros at these things!!!

You can always make a casing in the back and insert some elastic to make it fit you better.  Or if you don't want to make a casing, use some clear elastic and stitch it on the inside back of your halter.  Of course you could also cut the back up the middle and make a mock corset look.
