5 Awesome Kickball T-Shirt Modifications

Kickball is about having fun, why not extend that to the boring t-shirt you get for each season and spruce that thing up. A lot of these modifications are used to sexify a plain t-shirt but some of these will give you some more airflow if you are playing in the summer and would like to sweat a bit less.

These all pretty much just require a pair of scissors so really no excuse to show up to your next kickball game in that boring ass shirt they handed out to you at the start of the season. You will be making permanent changes to your t-shirt so make sure you have a spare and/or practice a couple times on your non official team shirt first. Keep in mind you can combine a couple of techniques to come up with a truly unique look.

Back Weave T-Shirt

IMG_2360main-tshirt-weave-modificationAwesome blog post from my GF over at MakerWoman.com on how to open up and create a variety of very interesting weave patterns into your shirt. This is a bit technical and can be tricky to do on cheaper material, so make sure you practice a couple of times before doing this to your team shirt. For an extremely detailed guide, check out her post on making a t-shirt weave.
For a video of making a similar style t-shirt weave that will open up the whole back of the shirt (you will need at least 1 or 2 sized bigger shirt for this), check out below.

Fitted T-Shirt

If you want to get something that will actually fit to you, here is how you turn that boring shirt into a nice fitted tee. This will only require a pair of scissors and some careful measuring. You may want to go up one size in t-shirts to give yourself some more room for making these modifications.

Fringe T-Shirt
