Tailor a Shirt in 15 Minutes

     Surprisingly, this was one of the easiest sewing projects I've ever attempted!

- Sewing machine
- Black thread
- Scissors
- Sewing chalk 

     First, figure out how much you need to take in. I ended up taking in half an inch from both sides. Turn you shirt inside out and mark along the edges how much needs to be taken in.

     Sew along the lines.

     Lastly, cut off any excess material and serge the raw edges (or if you're like me and don't have a fancy serger, use a zig-zag stitch). 

     You're finished! Put on your new shirt and proudly show off your tailoring skills.

  1. It's very impressive if you did that in 15 minutes. I have a feeling that with my sewing skills (or rather, lack of skill), it would take me hours.

    1. Haha! You never know till you try. ;)

  2. amazing that you can tailor your own clothing like this! what a great skill!
    the finished result looks wonderful...thanks for sharing :)

    1. Thanks! It's actually not that hard. You just need to have the guts to try! :)
