Mending the Gargoyles T

So I was recently set upon the task of mending a friend of mine’s Gargoyle Tank Top that at one point was a kid’s t-shirt. The shirt itself was made by a friend of mine who took the original shirt, cut around the pattern and then using a zig-zag stitch which served two purposes. First, the zig-zag stitch was amazing for dealing with the incredible stretchy-ness of the the tank-top that was chosen for the Gargoyles T’s final resting place. In addition to that the zig-zag stitch was done in a contrasting thread to make the cut out look more like an applique.

Basically, after making this awesome tank as time wore on the straps got a little longer than they used to, so I volunteered myself for the task of shortening them. I took a total of 3 inches off of both strap to make it a more appropriate length.

Overall the project ended up looking well and took me a grand total of 5 minutes to achieve. Some things that I found helpful for the project was having a jersey needle on hand. Also, having my buddy try it on and taking a good measurement and getting an idea where I wanted to cut.
