Everyone needs this tutorial, it is a needed tutorial for every member of your family. Whether you want to make shrink a shirt for one of your kids or yourself! I quickly finished this up during my kids eating lunch, so about 15 or 20 minutes. Easy! This was just a vintage inspired cuff style tee take in. Here are the links to a non-cuffed, plain tee shirt take in-here, here, here. Even though I have only shown how to do this with a kids tee, it is the same thing for any size.
1. Turn shirt inside out and pin and/or mark how much you need to take in. Cut off the bottom to inch from where you want the bottom to hit. Also cut off your sleeve leaving a few inches for the cuff, if you don’t want to do a rolled cuff, then cut off an inch form the bottom where you will want it to hit.
2. Sew and cut off extra. You can serge, zig zag stitch or leave alone the edges. Knit doesn’t fray so you can just leave it be if you like.
3. Cuff the sleeve a twice, at least an inch every roll and sew a 4 different short stitches every quarter around the cuff. If you don’t want a cuff, and you only cut it an inch from the where you want it to hit, then fold it under 1 inch and sew.
4. Hem the bottom under an inch. Iron the cuffs and bottom.
