HOW TO MAKE A FITTED T-SHIRT FROM AN OLD FAVORITE Adapted from "Save This Shirt" by Hannah Rogge Time: About 15 minutes Materials: 1 large T-shirt, preferably all-cotton, ironed; a well-fitting T-shirt to use as a pattern; sewing machine; straight pins 1. Turn the large shirt inside out and place it on a flat work surface, front facing up. Turn the well-fitting shirt inside out and lay it on top, front side up and centered, with the necklines as close to each other as possible. 2. Trace around the bottom and sides of the fitted shirt with chalk or a pen, depending on the color of the large shirt. Draw a line parallel to the top of the shirts' sleeves that extends from the bottom of the fitted shirt's armhole to the bottom of the larger sleeve (marking what will be the seam of the new sleeve). Remove the smaller shirt; at the chalk lines of the larger one, pin together the front and back.
