Now, on to the t shirts. These are very old, think early 2010. I watched a lot of ThreadBanger and bought some books on sewing. (the old crew is back to it and I enjoy their new videos) I am reviewing my old altered t shirts and going to work on some more. Putting my name and number on some new shirts will help my new team mates get to know me.
Here is a video that shows you how to make a pattern.
Tunic Large Mens T
Remove sleeves and cut a flattering neckline.
Turn inside out, measure and mark.
Pin then trim!
Sew sides, leaving arm holes open.
I used little scraps of fabric to gather fronts of straps. I tied a double knot and trimmed ends.
Dress from XXL Mens T
First remove collar and sleeves.
Measure and trim to size or use elastic to fit it if you want it baggy, like I did.
Use sleeves to make bust area, trim and pin.
Cut strips from scrap fabric and sew them to top for ties.
Sew... top and add elastic.
I wear it with a bandeau so its not too revealing.
Now to get out my stencils, paint and scissors to make some more tops!
