  1. Thanks so much. My boss ordered a bunch of work tees in a men’s XL for me (5’4″, 145#) and with your excellent tutorial, now I can wear them and not look like I’m raiding my dad’s closet.

  2. I’ve looked at a million tutorials on how to do this, but yours is the only one that is clear and easy to follow. You really nailed it. Thanks.

  3. I did this today and it worked great. I am an experienced crafter but a novice sewer and was very pleased with this tutorial because I’ll be able to use this technique often. Thanks!

  4. Thanks for this! I was able to follow your tutorial and fit a large t-shirt to my shape. My only trouble came from the sleeves, but that’s because I didn’t have a shirt with the right size sleeves to use as a template, so I had to use a tank top for the right armhole size. The resulting sleeve isn’t perfect, but it’s good enough. Thanks!

  5. This is an excellent tutorial I have so many shirts I want to try this on. By the way do you have any tips for a men’s short sleeve baseball t shirt? I wonder how you would use these techniques on a sleeve like that??
