May The Force Be With You

*Update- It's Star Wars Day or May 4th. I decided to share a flash-back to this Star Wars t-shirt my kids gave me back in 2016. I still wear it on a regular basis because one of my first memories is going to see the first Star Wars movie. I think I was 6. I have been a fan of the movies and in love with Han Solo ever since. I really liked this shirt because it looked like it was made when the first movie was made.
Hello Readers. I hope you are enjoying the beginning of summer. (If it is summer where you live.) I was so excited about the new Star Wars movie that my two big kids bought me this T-shirt. It was a big men's style shirt, perfect for playing around with.

I started by cutting off the neckband. It opened up the neckline and made it more comfortable.

I cut off the serged end seams from the arms. I also cut up the middle of each arms.

I pulled and tugged the cut corners to make them longer.

Then I tied them together in a knot. The opening added a little ventilation but left the coverage of sleeves.

I also took a little off the waist so it would be less bulky when I tucked it in. It looks funny here but it looked better when worn.

Here is my shirt. It is casual and comfortable. Perfect for...

chilling out in the backyard kiddie pool with this little guy.
*Look how little he was! Oh, my heart!

Thanks for reading along, and may the force be with you.
