I love T-shirts but I don't really care for how baggy they are on me. I decided recently to give up-cycling a try with one of my old shirts to see if I could make something new from something old.
I began by cutting off the hems around the sleeves and bottom edge. Then I cut off the collar and cut it down into a v-neck and added a slit down even farther. This gave it a nice look that I really love. I then measured in 2" on each side at about the waist and 1" at the bottom, drew a line and sewed it up. After words I serged all the edges for a nice clean look. And viola… a new shirt!
