Wardrobe Refashion: t-shirt resize

Before: men's XL t-shirt we got at a basketball game for free   
 

After: a size 10 t-shirt for Jerome


Here is another one.  
Before: men's large t-shirt from a thrift store for $2.37 (no pic)
After: another t-shirt for Jerome

No more wasted t-shirts in this household.

すごい完璧だね!私も一枚大きすぎて着られないTシャツがあるんだけど、それは絵が前面にあるからできないや…。でも、いつかやってみたい!

Great job. They look perfect, like they came like that!

わたしも、今年は使ってないわりと新しいわたしのTシャツの生地を使って生地を再利用してフィオナに作ろうと思って、日本で妹に頼んでパターン買っちゃっいました。

これを見て、milimiliさんのTシャツのパターンと、他にも何冊かアマゾンでパターンの本を購入しました。どこまで縫えるか・・・が疑問ですが。(笑)

実はニット用のミシンを買ったのよ〜。やっぱり子供服にはニットは欠かせないから。

Adrianne,
I haven't done freezer paper stencil yet. Got the exacto knife and found the freezer paper at Winco, but that is how far I got. Oh yeah, I got the pattern all printed out too. I will get to it in the next week or so. You are right. The t-shirts all have pockets.

リンクありがとう。日本のブログは全く知らなかったから楽しく見せてもらったよ。これからもかわいいブログあったら教えてね。 どんな本買ったの?楽しみにしてるよ。
