Shirt Refashion

I am exhausted.  In a good way.  There are days that are nice and easy, and then days that you got so much going on it just keeps coming.  Today was one of those.  I love it. 

We started the day early with enjoying the Hogle Zoo with a wonderful friend and our rambunctious daughters, came home in time for a good nap, then bang around on some old drawers (new and exciting project coming up! So be sure to keep an eye out for this), did a good visit with some more friends and lastly run at 8.30pm at night (in 40 degree weather, that's about 5 Celsius to the metric crowd) for the first time in with another amazing friend.  

Today is definitely a very social day. 

So with that I leave you with a tutorial on refitting your favorite t-shirt so they look good on you! 

What you need: 
T-shirt you want to refit
Your favorite fitted shirt for guide
Sewing machine 

So, you just use your favorite shirt and align them so you can draw out the shape on the t-shirt using a washable fabric marker. I had two shirts I used because one had the neckline I wanted and the other had the figure shape I wanted. Cut away the excess, leaving space for sewing the new seam and done. If you have a serger great, if not don't worry about it because knit fabric don't fray. Oh and for the neckline, you can leave it as it is, or if you want and what I normally do is fold down 2 times (about quarter of an inch each time and sew it around so it has a nicer finish. This is super easy and looks great too. I guess I should have taken a picture of me posing in it but if go on my Instagram, you could see I did some to accommodate a growing belly. Anyhow it is great not only for pregnant but also non pregnant bellies. You just have to change how wide you want the sides to be. 

 Have fun!!!


  1. Hey we went to the zoo too!! It was so packed. I think the whole world was there =) I love this tutorial. I'd love to try it!

    1. We got there right when it opened at 9 am.. so we got to enjoy the zoo just before it got too crazy!! Haha! But it sure was a fun one. Glad you got to go too (and came out of there in one piece!). But yes, try and let me know how it goes.

  2. Ciel is so cute. When was that picture taken?

    1. Thanks, mom. This was taken last summer. So she's probably about 6-7 months in this picture. :)
