I am on a roll today with posting, I know! But I had to share this with you guys. I got this blouse on a sale and did not bother trying it on and when I got home I realized that there was a defect with it as one sleeve was completely shorter and tighter than the other. Go figure! I could not even get my arm through it!
Due to being a sale item, I could not return or exchange it and I was so frustrated because what a waste of money right, plus I really liked the shirt. Yes, skulls again lol…
So I decided to cut off the sleeves and make it into a summer blouse. I am really not the one for sawing or stitching so I was quite surprised when I actually did a great job hehe!
1. I cut off the sleeves, not at the very seam (where the shoulders are) but leaving a bit of fabric out.
I left about an inch or half an inch of fabric all around.
2. I folded the extra fabric inside to create a smooth edge.
3. I stitched it up from the inside of the shirt all round and that is it!!!!
I took an extreme close up of the sleeve so that you can really see the stitching but when you put it on you cannot see anything at all.
It was really simple and easy and it worked!
Ok enough from me for today 🙂
