I have a couple shirts that I brought real cheap during a clearence sale. While I like them, a couple are a bit wide in the waist. One especially; when it's tucked it feels like I'm wearing a large garbage bag. A lot of you would obviously take it to a tailor, tell him to trim it down and boom! done. However I'm still a broke college student, so I decided to just do it myself. Now, does anybody know how to do it correctly? I know how to operate a sewing machine, I'm just not sure how to go at it. I'm thinking that I as cut what I want in the waist (which I will cut on the sides), I will gradually converge until until I'm at the armhole. Here's a picture that might help: (And no that's not my shirt.. ) Thank you guys!
