valu-plus XXL shirt

Valu-plus is a store just across the street from our apartment that happened to be going out of business this past week. As a result, they are liquidating pretty much all their goods, including plain cotton t-shirts. Normally, I never buy just plain cotton T’s, but ever since I started following sewing blogs, I’ve had an urge to grab every cheap fabric source I can get at to practice sewing xD Here’s a shirt I found for <$1!

Haha I really have a soft spot for these XXL shirts–mostly because they can easily become tunics 😉

To alter this, I brought in the sides and used the extra fabric to make rosettes for the collar.


best thing about being short is that you can take adv. of these xxl shirts xD
