I received a 5k shirt for remembering the event, and I really want to wear it through the summer; but, like many t-shirts I have had in the past, they are too long or too wide to feel fashionable (as fashionable as a basic t-shirt can be).
I found and love this tutorial about how to make a large t-shirt into a smaller t-shirt. I always enjoy learning something so simple and will be so useful in the future. I tried it with my Hospice 5k shirt and I think it turned out well. Check out the tutorial for step by step directions (all you need is a shirt that fits you perfectly, a pencil, and a sewing machine).
