I read somewhere on the net or in a magazine about a method for remaking
store bought t-shirts so they make a more flattering fit.  Of course, now
that I want to do that I can't find the info.
Can anybody help?  Thanks.

Was it the one with the tucks in the shoulders for when the shoulder
seam is dropped too far?

What don't you like about the fit?  There are lots of things you can do to
make them more flattering.

Here are two links that should help. The Cat Morley one is very basic.
What the Craft is more adventurous.

I second whatthecraft.com, I have looked over the website many times and
even used some of the tutorials (although not the t-shirt ones, I just "go
for it" with those.  The circle skirt tut is especially good even for
someone like me who hates math with a passion.

Also go to www.craftster.org/forum and look under clothing, reconstructed
projects, and there are lots of ideas there too.

Re: remaking store bought t-shirts
Thanks everyone.

Phædrine:  the pattern I'm talking about was how to make neck adjustments
and side seam adjustments etc. to make a cheap mans t-shirt into a more
fitted women's t-shirt.

Sharon:  that's exactly what I want to do make a large, wide t-shirt more
flattering to my body.

Thanks for the links everyone I'll check them out.

I recently ordered a pattern from www.pamelaspatterns.com after reading
an article in, I believe, Threads magazine. It's called T-Shirt
makeover and is numbered 103. Unfortunately, I haven't worked with it
yet so can't comment but it does look promising. NAYY.
