Why did it take me a year to figure out that I could just take this tee shirt in a bit to make it fit better, rather than letting it languish in my drawer? DOH! Anyway, it fits much better now that it isn't too big.
Also, this was my first mini-project on a knit fabric, rather than woven. I used a small zig zag stitch rather than a stretch stitch - 2b had recommended this and it worked beautifully. So, now I am feeling a little less fearful of the black jersey I recently purchased.
Naturally, now I am planning to go thru all my tee shirts to see which ones could fit better. Oy vay, another can of worms has been opened.
