Long Sleeved T-Shirt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Now this shirt fits like a dream and actually makes me look a bit slimmer because it's not so sloppy, and doesn't fall off at the shoulder. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If it doesn't fit anyway, there's not much risk. If you start cutting it up and screw it up -- oh well. But in reality, if you know basic patterning and sewing, you can do this with no problem!

Wow! Very nicely done. I've looked at this class, and well, just kinda sailed on past it, but now I think I can actually learn to alter my ready made wearables. I have gotten used to my clothes fitting looser, and making me look bigger than what I actually am, thanks for the inspiration-- again, it's a job well done. You look very nice in your tee shirt.

Yes, ill-fitting clothes do make you look bigger. It is a good class, she builds skills AND confidence!

What a professional looking job you've done !!! An amazing change. Congratulations !!!

Thank you. It is rather intimidating to cut into all ready made clothing that you spent money on. But if it doesn't fit right, you won't wear it, or when you do you'll feel awkward. So take a deep breath and start cutting. Remember your pattern shaping, where things should line up. It was fun to have it turn out so great, I wear it all the time, now.
