I was thinking the shirts were still AA and ended up ordering a women's medium which is awkwardly large on me. Will the washer/dryer shrink method just botch the designs?

I have no personal experience, but other people have reported that the Anvil shirts shrink around the designs, leaving some pulling and gaping around the design. It sounds like it's worse with designs that have more than one primary element: if the design is a solid block, it probably won't be as bad.

The print won't melt (it's not an iron-on heat transfer), and the idea is right, but the Anvil shirts will shrink length-wise, not width-wise, so what you'll end up with is just a (much) shorter shirt.

Short of altering it, there's no way around the difference in fitment. Artist @ochopika demonstrates her method here.
