Adding a panel of fabric to each side of a too-small t-shirt is a great way to give new life to a shirt that would otherwise be bound for the rag bin. Have unsightly pit stains? (Yeah, I said it.) The panel extends under the arm, so it’ll take care of those too! A big tip of my tailor’s chalk to Craftster user marieC for sharing photos of her method AND for not being afraid of a little sweat.
Have the opposite problem? Becky’s video will show you how to turn a boxy shirt into a foxy fitted tee.
