DIY: Shirt alterating help? - February 2nd 2010, 11:15 PM

So, in my shopping spree, I fell in love with a shirt that they only had in [Edited by Asylum]. I wear {Removed clothing size}. BUT, I bought it anyway - especially since the shirt runs kinda small and is like a {Removed clothing size} on me - which doesn't always bother me.

Instead of adding it to my 'I loved this shirt and bought it, even if it makes me look unshapely' shirt, I was wondering if there were any cool things I could do to it to kinda personalize it or make it fit differently.

I'm rather clueless on this DIY stuff. /:

Well, what kind of shirt is it? If it's a tee shirt, you can just carefully take in the sides and make it, you know, fit you.

Alternatively, you could cut the top into a wide boatneck and wear it with a belt, or you could make it into a skirt.. it really, really depends on the kind of shirt it is. A picture would help.

Belt round the waist, and leggings. (presuming it covers down under your bottom)
If it doesn't, belt round the waist, tights, shorts and some cute booties.

Make it your business to start some fires

do you have a pic? it's almost impossible to suggest things without seeing what it looks like.. take a pic with your wearing it?

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

I've seen this one thing done loads of times lately and I think it looks kinda cool. Only works on tshirts I think. And not if theres anything on the back you want to save

What I THINK they're doing, is cutting up the back. They basically cut it into strips in the back, then tie them together to make it smaller around the front. You'd need to find a picture somewhere. I've never done this myself, so I don't know if it'd work. But I'd personally wear a shirt under it as well because, well your back would show and i'd get very cold very quickly.
Or they do it to both the sides instead of the back.
I'd do more research than just diving into it though. Maybe practice on a different shirt since you seem to like this one a lot. It might just mess up the shirt every time you put it into the wash. =/ like, strands would be coming out. I don't know how those girls do it.

I was curious. =]

Take me seriously.
I dare you.
