I have a t-shirt pattern that I like except for the fact that it hangs up on my high hip. Is it possible to add princess seams to the back? How would this be done? I understand the concept with dart manipulation, but I am not sure how it would be accomplished with a t-shirt. Thanks!

I've put back darts in plenty of knits, including t-shirts, to address my swayback.

Though it sounds as if you know already how to turn a dart into a princess seam, Burda has a tutorial here, using a woven front. The back would be designed on the same principle, except for the fact that your dart shaping would be removing fabric in the center (fisheye dart), not at the edges of the pattern pieces.

Nicegirl reviewed a T-shirt pattern designed with princess seams, if you're interested in what the back looks like. Her blogpost is here.
