If you, like me, spend a lot of time going to gigs and collecting band T-shirts you will probably have encountered the following problems (1) bands not stocking skinny T-s (2) Skinny T-s being in unrealitic sizes (3) Skinny T-s being sold out.

This technique helps you turn boy T-shirts into skinny fit girly T-s and its SO easy!

NOTE: Sorry about the bad quality pictures :-( Had to take them on my phone, also this is a very 'rough and ready' how-to, I'm not a person to measure things and get them, feel free to be more precise than moi! :-) :-*

Technique Materials

Baggy T
Skinny T (your template)
Pins
thread
chalk
Sewing machine (or could be done by hand?)

      I wholeheartedly agree!! I unfortunately have wrecked an iron maiden shirt (by making it too small) and another amanda palmer shirt (mistake with sleeves left holes in armpits) almost wrecked a hole shirt the same way but saved it by making it into a vest instead. often mens shirts are cheaper and a have a wider range of designs, screw you patriarchy! we sew!!
