DIY- Sleeveless Shirts

This post is a quick DIY which I use all the time. Often I will grow out of shirts as the sleeves are too tight or I just don’t like the shirt with sleeves and feel it would look better as a sleeveles one. I’m sure most people have their own way of doing it but this is what I do and it can be used on shirts and tops too!! Enjoy: all details and steps below and if your trying it out and are having problems just message me below!!

Step 1:

Take your long-sleeved shirt and cut  both sleeves off leaving about 2cm from the seam of the sleeve- enough so you can turn it over.

Step 2:

 This is how it should look like once you have cut both sleeves off and what you need to do now is turn over the excess left so that it lines up with the seam of the sleeves and you can pin it down on just go for it like I do!

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3:

The next step is to set up your machiene, try and find a similar colour thread to the shirt and you need to use straight stitch so A or 0 on top and 2 on the bottom:

Step 4:

All you need to do now is get sewing,  insert it into the machiene go back a bit to secure the stitch and sew around it quite close to the edge, after sewn you can cut away the excess inside with pinking sheers or just normal scissors to neaten it:

 

Step 5:

Now your finished and you can try it on. This one is a tie up blue checked shirt so looks great tied over a white sleeveless top with high waisted denim shorts or just worn normally!! Enjoy!!
