This project was inspired by THIS Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Muscle Tee (below) spotted at Forever21.
Ok, Ok....So I know the F21 version is only $9.80 which is reasonable, until I found this tee on mega clearance at Target in the Boys Section (size XL)
I picked it up for only a couple of bucks and decided it should be super easy to refashion this into a muscle tee!
I started by chopping off the arms which was easy but once I put it on, I realized the boxy cut designed for boys made the arm holes super gapy...
Yes, I should have gotten a photo of what the gaping arm holes looked like, but alas, I didn't so you will have to use your imagination.
I decided it was time for me to delve into the world of DARTS. A terrifying new territory for me but I figured now was as good a time as any!
Darting was nowhere near as difficult as I had built it up to be in my mind! I just folded over some of the excess fabric while wearing the tee, pinned it, and sewed!
The darts did exactly what I wanted them to and made the tee lay much better on the body!
And here's the finished product! Not bad for a couple of bucks and about 15 min of time!
