An Easy T-Shirt Shortening Tutorial

One of the most annoying things is finding a shirt that's just straight up TOO LONG! This is especially true for shorter guys. In this video I'm going to show you how you can quickly and easily shorten a shirt at home with a sewing machine.

I got this shirt at Target on clearance like I do a lot of my shirts, but it's SUPER long. You can shorten it with keeping the factory hem, but this shirt needs to be shortened so much that we have to get rid of it. We are taking 7 inches off of this shirt!

The first thing you want to do is iron it down so that it's nice and flat. Next, measure and put a pin one inch from the bottom of your shirt. You're going to put one straight stitch across the bottom, and then a second one right below it a quarter of an inch down.

What was good about this video is there were some problems and mistakes that I made. I didn't properly check my stitch tension, so I ended up with some skipped stitches that made my shirt look bad. These things can happen to you, so make sure you check your settings! All in all, mistakes happen and you're going to mess up. We are all human. Practice and practice some more, and you will MASTER IT!

BTW, to anyone reading this, you guys leave me some awesome comments and send me cool messages on IG and I just wanted to say thank you. As random as it sounds most of the time it puts a smile on my face and makes me feel good, so thank you :)
