My hubby bought a shirt a few weeks ago and if yours is anything like mine then you know he didn’t even try it on. What’s up with that, anyway? I always have to try stuff on!! Lol. Well, it ended up being too small and, of course, he already pulled the tags off. He said I could  have it because it would be super comfy. I tried it on and it was way too big but I thought I could work with it to make it fit.

Now, I’m a Saints fan at heart but if they’re not playing at the same time as Seattle then I will definitely sport some Seahawks gear. I should have checked my photos because this was the only one that came out remotely clear. You get the idea, though.

I grabbed one of my other shirts and laid it on top and traced it. I cut the sleeves off and set them aside. Then I cut up the sides and around the shirt. I sewed the sleeves back on just as they were. Then, I sewed the sides of the shirt back up. Be sure to use a zigzag stitch so that the shirt can stretch a little without the seems ripping.

After that I loaded my elastic thread onto my bobbin and sewed one line down the side of the shirt. Since this shirt is super thin it only needed one line.  But, if it was a thicker shirt I would have done it a few more times.

I repeated the same thing with the sleeves. Next time I would probably angle the sleeves more so that when it scrunches up it’s not so long underneath. All in all I think it came out pretty cute!
