Hacking Conference Tshirts

Short Form


Know how you get all those great free tshirts at conferences? Don't you hate how they never seem to fit your feminine figure? Or worse yet, all that's left is sizes that are too big or too small! This talk will show easy modifications and alternative uses for those awesome conference tshirts!


This talk provides basic instructions and a live tshirt cutting demo for a no-sewing-machine required modification to improve wearability. I will also provide examples of ideas for transferring images. Additionally, there will be examples of alternative tshirt transformations, such as household items and practical accessories.

Speaking experience

I gave the first draft of this talk at the Orland Perl Workshop in January 2013. I've given other talks at local Perl Mongers groups.
