Altered states

I'm one of those people who buy fan shirts, may it be for my favourite TV shows, movies, or musicians. I also like souvenir shirts. I tend to buy the unisex ones and not the ones made for women, which I find are too tight to my liking (even the large ones). These unisex ones are HUGE, which I like, but unfortunately, they are too long which make them all look like my house shirts. What to do?

Solution: I turned them all into cropped tops!

Before:
from Hot Topic
After:

Daughter's comment: "You cut it too short. Now, it's mine."
So simple, you guys. I just used my fave cropped top as a length guide, then basically altered the shirt hems. I think it makes all these shirts more wearable, right? (I just hope my love for cropped shirts does not go away soon.)



A few shirts done...a dozen more to go....

Do you wear T-shirts a lot?

  2. I totally agree with you that the women shirts are always way tighter than on normal shirts! I own a city shirt in XXL (says the tag) which is smaller than one in S from H&M!

  9. The shirts are cool and so is the way you transformed them into crop tops! After that Christmas special, I can't wait for the next season of Sherlock!

  11. Great idea to make them fit exactly how you like them. I love that I Am Sher Locked tee. I think I've seen that come in other accessories as well.

  12. Love how you rock a crop top. They don't suit me at all, unfortunately, cause I do like the look of them. ANd I can't wait for new episodes of Sherlock!

  15. Great idea! Looks fabulous on you. I have problems with these styles of shirts too, I find the women's ones are not a very flattering cut. I want to buy a shirt for the Australian Open tennis but am fearing a similar problem.

  17. So well done! I really want to get a sewing machine so I can make alterations like these to my clothes too. I keep running to the tailor instead

  21. Clever and well done! My hubby is returning from Florida today, I instructed no more tourist shop t-shirts. So he got me some nice stuff, he's arriving later today, can't wait to dig in the luggage. Better not get lost with connection flight and all.
