How to Remake an Adult T-shirt for a Child
Take the kid’s t-shirt and turn it inside out. Tuck in the sleeves so the seams are exposed. Pin the kid’s t-shirt to the men’s t-shirt. You may need to adjust the position of the kid’s t-shirt to make sure the image works for the smaller size.
Measure a 1/2 inch seam allowance around the shirt.
Cut out the pieces. Cut both pieces out using the back neckline. Then measure 1 inch down on the front neckline and cut. Sew the front and back pieces together at the sides and shoulders.
Line up the kid’s sleeve with the men’s. Cut out 1 sleeve on each side leaving an 1/2 seam allowance.
Fold the sleeves over and sew the seam.
Turn the sleeves right side out and sew to the shirt. Using an iron, press the bottom hem of the shirt and the sleeve hem up 1/2 inch and stitch in place.
Using a seam ripper, remove the ribbed neckband from the men’s t-shirt. Cut to fit the kid’s shirt and sew in place.
