Making Stuff: Refashioned Race shirt

by This is Carrie on October 26, 2010

The race t-shirt from the Chapman 5K was a nice “technical” t-shirt (meaning it’s made from non-cotton, wicking material making it good for running in).  Problem was, even the smallest t-shirt was too big for Princess to enjoy.  With a little cutting and some elastic thread shirring we turned it into something cute and “technical” because we like to run fast & run pretty in this house.   And it pairs perfectly with a kid’s size sparkle running skirt.

I absolutely love it! I picked up a size small and it fits like a large. That is a brilliant way to stylize it AND make it fit! Now if I can figure out how to do some elastic shirring….

I’m definitely going to have to try this out on one of my (many) oversized race shirts. Soo CUTE!

I think this is my favorite refashioning of a T-shirt so far.

Cute site! I don’t sew and have no desire to learn, but love you reuse of race shirts. I was buying a shirt for all the races I did, but because I was doing one per month they took over. I wear them for bed shirts, but am thinking about working with my quilting MIL to make a couch quilt out of them.

I added your batch to my blog. Love it!
