For the game against Camden Fairview I borrowed my future sister in law's beautiful cute shirt, which obviously wasn't an option to wear the next consecutive day (for clear reasons that it's just tacky and I'll admit I was going to try and pull it off but I'm pretty sure Baby Dotson did a drooling number on it).
So what am I supposed to do? I am the coach's wife, I can't just show up in any old outfit (that may have worked through the season but it just won't cut it in the semi-playoffs)!!!
I began researching "no-sew" fitted t-shirts and didn't like all the fringe exposed on the sides or how tacky they made the necklines. I just wanted a simple way (no sewing involved) to hem up the sides to narrow them in.......
Hence the DIY project came into action.
This project took maybe about an hour total (but once you do it once I have a feeling it wouldn't take that long in the future) and cost me an old t-shirt = FREE.
I went through Daddy Dotson's closet and selected this one (out of seriously like 100)!!!
See "L" -----> that's just not going to work
Flipped my shirt inside out
Cut off the bottom so the edges would roll up
When I cut the sides I wanted to make sure it would have a "girly" fit so I kinda cheated in on the waist
Did this to both sides
Then I cut fringe on each side and the bottom part of the arm
I double knotted each piece (it probably would have taken less time to sew it)
This was my end result
Front.....see much more "fitted"
Obviously it's not hemmed so there will be some gaps (hence the white spot) but I think it looks cute with an undershirt on anyways.
