When you are creating a t-shirt design, it might seem like there are only so many things that you can do with it. After all, it is just a shirt and there aren’t many ways to change it. There are a ton of rules to follow when designing one of these tees, but once you know those rules, there aren’t that many limitations. You can add sleeves, eliminate sleeves, add graphics, or leave it plain. But what about at-shirt? What does that even mean? Well, as it turns out, this refers to a specific kind of t-shirt design where the fabric is cut in such a way that the torso and sleeves look almost exactly like an “at” sign.
Why is it Called At-Shirt?
“At-Shirt” is the name of our program. It is the first of its kind in the country to offer free, comprehensive help to parents who are struggling with sons who are in trouble with drugs and alcohol. The program is sponsored by the Family Foundation of America, a national non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C., and has been operating since 1991 under federal approval as a pilot project.
What Is An At-Shirt?
At-shirts are t-shirts that have a design on them where the torso is shaped like an “at” sign. Typically, the sleeves are also shaped like the “at” sign, but some designs have the sleeves shaped differently than the torso. The name “at-shirt” comes from the resemblance the shirt has to the “at” sign on a computer. An at-shirt is a very specific kind of t-shirt design. Although at-shirts are a specific design, there are a few different variations of the shirt. The most common variation is to have the sleeves shaped like the “at” sign, but the torso shaped like a normal shirt. Another variation is to have the sleeves shaped like an “at” sign and the torso shaped like an “at” sign. These are the two main variations of an at-shirt, but there are many modifications you can make to one, such as adding color to the design.

- Decide if you want to have a design on the sleeves or torso of the shirt.
- Measure your shirt and then cut it to fit your measurements.
- If there are any extra inches on the sides, seam them down with a sewing machine or serger, or by hand with a seam ripper and a needle and thread, using the same color as your shirt.
- If there are any extra inches on the sleeves, hem them with a serger or by hand with a seam ripper and a needle and thread using the same color as your shirt (optional).
- Sew all of these seams down so that they are permanently sewn together into one piece of fabric, including any extra inches at the bottom of your sleeve (if applicable).
- Make sure that all of the seams are sewn down, and then cut off any extra fabric.
- Iron your shirt to get rid of any stray creases (optional).
- Cut out the design from a piece of cardstock paper or cardboard.
- Tape it on your shirt, or use a pin or hot glue to secure it in place (optional).
