Welcome To Thread It Thursday!!!!!
Today’s post was inspired by my oldest daughter. She so graciously offered to help me clean out and organize my fabric stash. With her help, I was able to giveaway and get rid of a lot of fabric. Once we were all done she said do you think you can make me a t-shirt with leopard sleeves. I thought and said what a “great idea”. Now I can’t make something for one child and not the other…..so we quickly found a fabric that my youngest would love. I quickly got to work. With all that said……let’s get into this tutorial.
T-shirt with or without sleeves
1/2 yd of knit fabric
Sleeve pattern for stretch fabric (* I will include a video that shows you how to draft your own if needed.)
1. If you’re using a t-shirt with sleeves remove them. (* the shirts I used were sleeveless)
2. Using your sleeve pattern cut out 2 sleeves.
3. Sew sleeves, attach to shirt and finish the seams. I used a 1/2″ seam allowance for mine.
It’s as easy as that.
Need help drafting a sleeve pattern. Check out the video below.
I hope you enjoy this easy t-shirt re-fashion. If you like easy re-fashion sewing project’s…check out my Madewell Inspired shirt dress here.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by, it’s truly appreciated!!!
Happy Sewing & Until Next Time,
