Create another table called ShirtSizes

Table Shirt

    ShirtID
    ... and so on...

Table ShirtSizes

    ShirtSizesID
    ShirtID
    Size

You could even go further and have a table for sizes and then ShirtSizes just has a ShirtID and a SizesID. This is commonly how folks map many to many relationships.
