Occasionally, clothing requires tailoring such as taking in a shirt to make it a smaller size. Those who have ever tailored a shirt themselves or paid someone else to do so realise that this procedure takes time and can be quite expensive. If you are in a hurry and do not have time to tailor a shirt, consider making the shirt smaller with some safety pins.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Turn the shirt inside out.

  2. 2

    Fold the shirt at the seam-lines to the desired size. Keep in mind that for every inch of folding, you are actually making the shirt smaller by two inches. Be sure to fold each side equally so that the shirt does not appear uneven.

  3. 3

    Pin the shirt into position using two safety pins on each side.
