KNOTTED SIDES T-SHIRT *Cut horizontal strips int sides, as deep the shirt to be taken in. The thinner the strips, the more finished. Make strips near underarms very small & close together to avoid huge holes. double-knot each strip. For sleeves, cut a tiny slit just below the seam at the very top of each shoulder and tie the sleeves up with a ribbon or scrap of fabric slipped through the slit.
