Customising and updating your old clothes can be an innovative way to revitalise your wardrobe. Altering and embellishing men's T-shirts to make them more feminine and flattering will ensure your outfits are unique and suit your personal sense of style. Men's T-shirts are cut differently than women's, and are not designed to flatter the female form. With just a few alterations, a large and shapeless T-shirt can become a well-fitted addition to any wardrobe.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Re-size a man's T-shirt. Take a T-shirt which fits you well and lay it directly on top of an oversized shirt. Carefully cut the edges of the man's T-shirt, using the well-fitted T-shirt as a template.

  2. 2

    Pin and sew along the edges of the T-shirt you have trimmed, remembering to turn the man's T-shirt inside out prior to sewing. When you have finished, turn the shirt right side out, so that the seams you have sewn are on the inside.

  3. 3

    Attach a feminine lace collar to your resized T-shirt. Pin the lace collar along the natural neckline of the T-shirt to hold it in place while you sew. Sew along the neckline until the collar is firmly secured to the T-shirt.

  4. 4

    Tie a piece of ribbon into a bow shape. Pin the bow onto the centre of your lace collar. Carefully sew the bow into position.

Tips and warnings

  • Draw around the well-fitted shirt using a pencil that contrasts with the fabric for an additional guide.
  • Always exercise caution when working with sharp fabric scissors.
