Please help me remember the tricks. A friend of mine is going to a big deal  
football game this weekend. She has a team shirt But says it is dress  
length.  I haven't shortened a knit shirt in decades.  I sort of remember  
that I used to iron on a skinny strip of light-weight interfacing *Before*  
cutting to prevent a wobbly lettuce hem.  Any other thoughts?

Oh my WOW.  Thank you so much.  I needed that.  I just might go shorten  
every t-shirt in the closet.  I've marked as a favorite and will try all  
three methods.  Sooo grateful.  Polly

I found it yesterday while browsing for some tee shirt patterns. There  
is also a very a very good tut on how to match up fabric, to pattern size.

Down and done.  I took the method I used to be familiar with and did a neat  
job - but, when I have time to toy with the serger settings, I really want  
to try the other techniques.  Can't thank you enough.  Polly
