Makeshirt-1

It is really easy to mod those regular o’ t-shirts into something more funky fresh. T-shirt fabric is the best to work with because it is the most forgiving for mistakes. Plus who doesn’t have tons of those techy tees to test out on? All you have to do is copy the shape from one of your favorite stylish t-shirts or take a t-shirt reconstruction class over at Stitch Lounge. This modified MAKE shirt I created is made with 2 Medium tees (It can also be done with one XL if you want to have more of a drape, or less thickness for the banding.) Zig-zag stitching on the edges in contrasting black thread makes it fun and gives the sleeves a nice little “flutter”. Calling all Makers! if you have a great idea for a MAKE shirt and can post a link to a sketch, photo or detailed write up of you’d like to create (post in the comments), we’ll pick a few folks and send out some free MAKE shirts for you to hack on.
