Ringling Remake

Pamela's Patterns T-Shirt Makeover #103

This was fun. I got this shirt in an XL over the summer when my oldest DD and I visited the campus of Ringling College of Art and Design. She is halfway through her freshman year now.

The T-Shirt was huge and not my style, so I made some changes.

I cut a size medium and think I could have gotten away with a small. I modified the neck opening even more than the pattern suggested. I narrowed the neck ribbing, stretched and blocked it with my steam iron, stitched it to the shirt with my serger, and turned it up and stitched it down with a straight stitch. It worked beautifully.

To make it even more fun, I added a few beads!

I may actually wear it now. DD loves it!

This is really cool! I have an oversized t-shirt with my company's logo on it that I want to refashion like this. Beads might make it even better! Great job!
