Hello Readers. This is a story about a sad, plain T-shirt. I thought it was a plain T-shirt. I was on the clearance rack and I thought it would be a loose shirt that would be good for layering. I was wrong.

It looks like a medical scrub shirt. And it is thick so it doesn't drape at all. It's almost like a lightweight sweatshirt. It makes me look a little bulky too. Some of that is Christmas cookies and some is this big shirt.

Here is my plain shirt. It will be easy to alter. You can't see that tag but it says XS. There is no way this is size extra small. I am usually a medium and this is big on me.

I took the sides in and made it smaller and more fitted. I created a little cap sleeve when I took in the sides too. You can see the added trim I thought would make it look less medical and more feminine. 

I used a wide zigzag stitch to attach the trim around the neckline. I liked it and added it across the shoulders to cover a tiny hole I found. No wonder it was on the clearance rack.

It was a quick and easy project because T-shirts don't fray and I didn't have to worry about finishing the inside seams. 

This is me trying to get my phone away from my 17 year old son. He is taller than I am and likes to tease his short mom. You can see I am not laughing, because it's not funny. At all.

That's it for now, go make something fun for yourself.
