Shirt Refashion

This shirt was one of my winter staples (its maternity….don’t tell), but its definitely seen better days.  See that bleach spot smack dab in the middle?  Mega Bummer.

Lucky for me I found this tutorial….so now that bleach spot is hidden and it can be a summer staple too!  Love that.

Except when I wear it I kind of feel like I'm wearing a Sienfield-ish poofy white shirt...sorry for the creepy picture.  :)

I do love your makeovers! Can you offer some advice? I have a beloved tee shirt, with vee neck, 3/4 sleeves and a bottom which has a curved flap at the front and a curved flap at the back (it's really nice honest!). Its falling to bits- literally and I would love to make myself another, in fact several. How do I make a pattern and how to I sew stretchy fabric? greatful thanks from England

Haha, fun! I love doing shirt refashions, do them all the time! And don't worry, no one will liken your shirt to the Puffy Shirt when you wear it =)

Love your shirt now even better.
Very smart to do that and very in-fashion.
