Take in your top!! tutorial

Have you ever been thrifting and stumbled upon a shirt you would love to buy, but it's way to big?
Me too. This will never be a problem for you again, because you are about to learn that size doesn't matter!

Here is how you can fix the problem in 1o mins or less!

And you can do it on just about any kind of top.
Sweaters, t-shrts, cardigans, whatever!

Take in your Top! Tutorial

  • Oversized shirt
  • Needle and thread
  • Sewing machine (optional)
  • Pins (optional)

1.) Put on your shirt, inside-out. (Jason's is not inside-out, but we will forgive him. Mostly forgive me because I forgot to tell him to do so.)
2.) Measure the amount needed to be taken in with your fingers. Make sure that you do both sides. (ex: 2 inches on both sides to take in 4 inches.)

3.) Remove your shirt (make sure it's still inside-out) and measure with your fingers where you will need to sew. If you would like, you can place pins where you will need to sew. Begin to hand or machine sew.
4.) Try it on and repeat the process if you feel your shirt needs to be resized again.

In other news: Jason shaved his beard off today and I don't even KNOW him anymore! What is happening to my life?!
