    I am still amazed. That shirt fits him so well. What a great way to waste not, want not. Thanks for sharing. (keep up the great pictures)

    Great idea! Love the fit- especially the collar. What a cutie!

    Love it! What about the unfinished edge of the collar? I cut it to the correct length, w/ an extra inch to mess with. How should it be finished; won&#39;t it unravel? Thanx!

    If it is a ribbed knit collar (like most of them are) then it shouldn&#39;t unravel. That it the beauty of knits they don&#39;t have to have a finished edge. I just cut mine following the grain of the fabric so it ended on a nice clean line. I hope that helps.

    Just made a little sized polo out of a thrifted shirt for my girlie. Worked so well! Only problem I had was with the button area. Too many layers of fabric there (weird shirt thingy going on).<br />Instead of hemming the edge, I tried a lettuce edge and it looks chic girly now!<br />Thanks for the tute. Love your blog.

    Great job! And good pictures! I can&#39;t wait to try this, I have a few polos I&#39;ve been saving for my son, especially some work polos that I thought would be cute to have them match in! So thank you so much for this awesome tutorial!

    This is a great idea for making matching Daddy and me shirts! (Maybe I&#39;ll get an early start on Father&#39;s Day by keeping my eye out for some cute, cheap polos at Target…) Thanks so much!

    How do you get a smaller arm hole from the mens shirt. I was trying to picture it in my head. Seems you would have to cut the somewhere between the shoulder of the shirt to the upper part of the back?? Am I missing something.

    1. Shauna

      I matched up the smaller shirt with the front placket as I wanted that and then cut new shoulder and arm curve, it was considerably smaller than the shirt was. Hope that helps!

    Or do you just snip the shoulder… I re-read it and it looks like that is what you may do. It just says to follow the sleeve on the t for sleeve size. I’m new to all this and have always thought of sizing my dd clothes…she is tall so has to fit in a larger size for length but then the clothes are to big for her.
