Altered t-shirt

I have a few favorite t-shirts that are too short.

I've been searching pinterest for ideas on how to lengthen this one.
Here's my pin board.

I couldn't find exactly what I wanted so I thought I'd just go for it.

I bought a black t-shirt that was about the same weight.
I cut from the underarm to the center then straight down to the hem.

I pinned it in place and whip stitched it with three strands of black embroidery thread.

I repeated the process on the other side.


I decided to color the pink thread with a turquoise Sharpie.

I like the result. I think I'll try the next on with three different colors.
