How To Make A Band Tee Fit Girls Better - Without Sewing!

Aeternus tee - Gig
Jeans - Blue Asphalt
Skelly socks - H&M

I'm here with another DIY for chicks that find themselves swimming in their band shirts! I wore an Alice Cooper shirt in my last post which is HUGE on me, but I couldn't really do anything about it, since the print on the front and back were so big. But I pulled this Aeternus one out of the closet, and the print on this is really small! So I decided to try the technique I've done on t-shirt sleeves in the past - on the sides. If it all went to shit I have an Aeternus girlie anyway. But I do love this print! I believe it's drawn by Jannicke Wiese-Hansen (I want her to do my next tattoo). I found a couple of photos from the last time I wore this shirt (I'm obviously holding the excess fabric behind my back).

So let's get started!

I folded it in half on the side and cut of the collar.

Then while wearing it, I tried to as evenly as possible grab the excess fabric on the sides, and marked the spots with a white eyeliner. A little uneven, but I made another mark.

I put a piece of paper along the mark and started cutting triangles on the sides.

Snip the triangles at the top like so, tie together and voila!

Now it's so tight that I can barely wear it over my studded belt!

I didn't want to cut the shirt itself shorter, cause this technique will make it a little shorter. Pull on the knots to make the holes in the sides bigger, and so it doesn't scrunch up the print. I'm pretty happy with it, it actually fits me tightly now! That never happens. Considering I can't sew for shit, this is a pretty good technique! If I have more shirts with small prints, I will do more of these.

Btw, check out the new video my ''goth sis'' made!

  1. Excellent idea! If only I were about thirty years younger ... as it is I buy the smallest size that will fit me, let my natural curves (ie fat) give it some shape, and cut the neck lower.


Make my day!
