In our travels Mr. T can always find great looking logo t-shirts. He has quite a colorful collection and it's a fun way to remember the places we've been. I like to help him pick them out but I don't usually get one for myself because I feel like a walking billboard and they're pretty boxy on me. When we were at Canyonlands I changed my mind when I saw the nice logo designs. So with the intention of a little redesigning I bought a couple of t-shirts.
Before the re-do
The high round neck, the sleeves and the length aren't very flattering (on me), so the scissors and I got busy snipping when we got home.
Cutting the neck a little deeper and further out on the shoulder. A couple of inches off the sleeve and about four inches on the bottom. I had a shirt from Cancun that I also threw in the re-do mix.
The cut pieces
I had a 'fat quarter' that made a perfect bias trim. A couple of tucks in the front and back give the shirt a more feminine touch and eliminate the boxy look.
I'll have to get some more t-shirts this summer to do a little more experimenting. It was a fast project and a big improvement.
