No Sew T-shirt Refitting

Another post from the past (Dec 2009) – I was inspired by this tutorial last-last year.


  • Large t-shirt
  • Scissors

1. Find a large/oversized t-shirt.

2. Cut 2 strips from the bottom, using one of my other t-shirts (that actually fits) to measure.

3. Snip the top of the sleeves.

4. Cut a strip in 2 then used it to tie up the sleeves. I just did a knot – too many bows might be weird.

5. Snip a hole on either side and slipped the 2nd strip through, tying into a bow. The great thing about this is that I can adjust it according to how I want the t-shirt to fit!

Here’s a final shot of the top from the front now.
