DONE- my tshirt was 3-4 times too big. Would use 2-3 times too big next time because the shoulders were larger than i wanted. Cut a girly 2in out and cut about 1.5in slits to tie. Ended up having to go back and do the sleeves because the top was still too big. After i was done i decided i could have cut another inch out in the beginning, just being cautious for a first try i guess. Surprisingly, the ties arent bothersome! OVERSIZED SHIRT INTO A FITTED TEE. NO SEW.
