New Custom Shirts

Posted on October 10, 2018 by under Projects, Zumba.    

I got some shirts from my new gym recently. Check out how I customized them.


This first one was a size Small so I had to expand it a bit to make it less fitted.


This next one is an Extra Large so I had to shrink it.


The best way to take shirts in is to braid parts of it. I usually braid it on the sides but this time I opted for braiding the back of the shirt. I achieved the braid pattern on this shirt by cutting several slits on the back of the shirt then weaving the slits down and back up.


Here’s what the finished product looks like.


I love how I managed to customize a shirt that was originally all the way to my knees and extra wide and turn it into a super cute workout shirt. The only downside is that this shirt actually got even smaller (and shorter) after I washed it. Now it’s almost like a cropped shirt. I’ll have to remember that next time and not to get overzealous when I’m cutting the hem.

Anyway, I promised a couple of my VASA Fitness Zumba girls that I would show them how to customize their shirts next week after class. So, if you’re free next Monday, come join us for 6:30 PM Zumba and stay after for the shirt cutting.

If you’re not a member, not to worry. We are running a #ClassPassMadness promo right now at VASA. I have several FREE CLASS PASS cards or you can request a class pass online here:

You can catch me at VASA Fitness on Saturday mornings at 8:45 AM for Aqua Zumba and Monday nights at 6:30 PM for Zumba. Hope to see you soon!

#ClassPassMadness ends on October 21 so don’t delay! Check out our beautiful gym ASAP!
