For this refashion I went with something more traditonal for Valentine's Day: Red, hearts, and obviously, the word Love. I've had this shirt for the longest time and I stopped wearing it long ago. When I was looking for a new refashion I though this would be the perfect time for this.
As for the meaning of this shirt, I'll leave that one up to you. ;)
My meaning? God is Love, & He makes me joyful. :)
Now on to the refashion, first off, I cut up the sides of the shirt.
I also cut off the sleeves since I wanted to make new ones.
Afterwards, I cut 2 triangles to add to each side.
Note: these are folded in half in the photo.
As for exact measurements, that's up to you. It depends how you want your shirt to fit. I will add the measurement of the triangles upon request.
Then I sewed on these triangles onto each side. (Right sides together)
Note: this is how it looked inside out.
How it looks like when it's done.
Since I had cut off the sleeves, I made new ones out of the old ones. If you're doing this, just remember to add about 1/4" - 1/2" all around for seam allowance. I like 1/2" to leave room for any possible mistakes. Also, add about 1" to the bottom of the sleeve for a hem.
Then I just sewed on the sleeve as shown.
